Brigid’s Cross

Celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring by learning how to draw a Celtic Brigid’s cross.

Traditionally made at Imbolc 1st February the seasonal festival that marks the first day of spring in the Celtic Calendar. It is made from straw or rushes and placed inside the house over the door. Imbolc is a time of purification, rebirth and renewal.

Brigid’s Cross is widely believed to be a Christian symbol but its origins lie in much older Irish traditions and folklore. It is an ancient Celtic symbol, deeply rooted in pagan mythology and associated with the goddess Brigid. It symbolises protection, blessings, and warding off evil spirits for the year ahead.

The ancient Irish people held Brigid in high esteem and regarded her as a powerful deity who played a vital role in their daily lives. As the goddess of fire, Brigid brought warmth and illumination to the hearth, ensuring the comfort and well-being of households.
