About The Event
Two part Workshop, taught on the 2nd and 9th of September.
Lore of the land's ‘hidden ones’ permeates folklore and ballads, customs and stories. They often live, the lore tells us, in singular or small clumps of trees - those trees which the community used to know as their dwelling -- and the place a bold human might meet them. In this workshop, Hannah Sanders gives instructions drawn from the creideamh sí, or fairy faith: how to identify and approach faery trees with offerings, charms and incantations, as well as how to create protections from mischievous spirits.
Part 1 will be instructional on the Denizens and Customs of Fey, and Part 2 is about encounters, and building your own relationship (becoming a "Fey Charmer" as it is called in old Irish) with the Fey Folk through trance, offerings, altars, and charms.
If you wish to follow along at the time please have a pen, a notebook and a candle
