About The Event
Whether mending or building, making or repairing, pins, needles and nails were crucial to the maintenance of a household. Such useful tools of maintenance and security are found littered across the domestic folk magic of Europe – whether in the creation of the famed 'witch bottles', protective witch signs, poppets, or charms for animals and households. In this class we will create charms for safe travel and good health to carry you safely ahead.
Hannah Sanders has a doctorate in anthropology and is a longstanding practitioner of folk and herb magic. She was the last apprentice of writer and tarot reader Joyce Collin-Smith, and she is the granddaughter of a well-known Irish fortune teller. Professionally, she is a traditional folk singer.
