Sasha and Delta Designs
As Christmas is approaching, some of the younger Andaspain family have been keeping busy by being creative. Kate‘s children, Sasha and Delta, have been spending their time creating Camino Christmas Crafts! They are truly keeping the Camino de Santiago at the heart of what they do!
Whilst the Camino was quieter this year, Sasha and Delta managed to visit Vanessa and Ashleigh at the Andaspain Tavern, TabernaNova. The Andaspain Camino Bar is located at km33 on the Camino Francés, Camino Primitivo, and the Camino del Norte.
Sasha and Delta designed a variety of wooden and beaded Camino pendants and bracelets. The duo set up their stall along the trail, offering their wares for a donation from passing pilgrims on the last leg to Santiago de Compostela. They have also made coasters and key-rings for pilgrims walking the Way.
The design team even had several requests for personalised items. These were fulfilled and sent out to the pilgrims.
Camino Christmas Crafts
Sasha and Delta have progressed to new designs for the festive season! Camino Christmas designs include the Camino arrow, scallop shell, hearts, as well as the traditional Christmas tree, reindeer, holly and snowflakes. The youngsters source wood from fallen branches in the forest near their home in Asturias. Next, they use a wood burning tool to etch the designs. After adding a string to hang, their wooden creations become a Camino Christmas tree decoration!
Being in nature is what inspires us. Heading out to find beautiful pieces of wood gives us an excuse to do our favourite thing – walk! We would love to hear how you are keeping busy and positive during these difficult times. All of us on the team, are feeling hopeful about next year. We are also looking forward to the Holy Year in 2021.
If you have any ideas for other crafts Sasha and Delta can work on, we would love to hear them. Send an email to email@example.com; text or Whatsapp on 0034 697 244 387; or use our Contact Form.
