About The Event
Magic has long been used to protect the home from negative forces. In this workshop Rebecca Beattie reveals some old folk ways, along with a selection of contemporary variants -- with hands-on demonstration which attendees can join in, if they wish. She will show the use of the witch bottle, as well as the specific ways people in the past magically applied flame, smoke, symbols berries and branches to stay safe from unwelcome invisible powers.
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.
Rebecca Beattie brings an informative approach and inclusive style to her teaching, which is aimed at those starting out. A Wiccan priestess who apprenticed in her tradition over 15 years, she brings much lived experience and practical knowledge. She has an MA in Literature (London) and a doctorate in Creative Writing (Middlesex) with a dissertation on the modernist mystic Mary Webb. Rebecca is a published author with several books to her name.
