About The Event
'Old Folklore' Series
Much feared and dreaded, folklore gives 'baneful' plants a wealth of potent attributions. They are everywhere, from the cursed apple in Snow White, to the screaming mandrake root in medieval texts. The superstitions attest to their otherworld connections, and this workshop is dedicated them. Hannah Sanders covers their dark lore, then leads a meditation for building connection to the plant energies. She then gives a hands-on demonstration in making baneful herb amulets, posies and potion bottles; attendees are invited to join in from home. To join in, bring: gloves, scissors, an apple, mistletoe, ivy, yew, holly, elderberries, basil, tomatoes, poppy seeds, chili peppers.
Hannah Sanders is a traditional folk singer as well as being witch and magical herbalist. She was also the last apprentice of writer and tarot reader Joyce Collin-Smith, and is the granddaughter of a well-known Irish fortune teller.
