About The Event

The history of cunning folk is a long and rich one, but it is not confined just to dusty history books. Cunning magic is still used today and has inspired a weath of magical traditions. This engaging conversation will explore the taunt thread running from legends to modern magic. Learn who cunning folk were, what did they did (and still do) and how they inspire modern practice. The conversation will touch on the working book, tools, etc... and explain the cryptic phrase "hatches, matches, and dispatches".

Dr Alexander Cummins is a contemporary cunning-man and historian of magic. His magical specialties are the early modern grimoires, divination (especially geomancy) and the myriad folk necromancies of working with the dead.

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.
