Altar cloth

A friend has started a forest church which gathers a group of us together each month to worship in the woods.  She asked if I could make an “altar cloth” and we used it this month for the first anniversary of this church.  It’s the first time we held communion, with spelt bread and homemade grape juice.

I felted the mat from wool that was dyed from local sources by this fine artist.

Grape juice

Yesterday Eily and his cousins made grape juice, by pressing grapes they found in the schoolyard. When i went into the kitchen afterwards, these tools were out.

By the way, the juice was actually pretty good.
