Hearth Magic, Preparing for Winter
Time & Location
About The Event
In the old yearly calendar, Halloween is a time to prepare the home for the coming winter: to lay down stores and tend to the inner life. There are many magical folk customs which can be drawn on today, and Hannah Sanders shares her favourites. A hands-on demonstration of two, which attendees can join in if they wish, makes up the second half of the session. Using seasonal herbs, Hannah makes pomanders and sachets with magical powers to bless the home. A seasonal country wine is explained, a drink to cheer the home-dweller and imbue them with the fruits' potencies as well as the 'spirit'.
This workshop is hosted as part of the Museum of the Home's "Home Truths: Keeping a Magical Home" event on Thursday 28 October for the Museum’s Winter Festival.
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.
