The Beltane

Located at Draig Goch ap Tir


Using the students from the course, “Celtic Fire Rituals” a hoard of people celebrated the Beltane. The difference in this work was that there was an entire semester, 16 weeks to prepare for the final performance.

The students had the time to explore the myths and legends of the Celts and absorb some of their ancient beliefs. As it is always, each person brings with them the understanding of what is to happen. Some were already involved into the mystique of the culture, while others found the rituals, ceremonies and writings about those items to be like a foreign language.

In the end everyone was committed to the performance, which began with the traditional feast. The images speak for themselves.
