An afternoon workshop combining folk magic, a sprinkle of aromatic botanicals, a dash of inspiration and positive intention to create your very own Witch Bottle.

Witch bottles constructed in pre-modern England for protection against negative magic and malign influences, were deemed effective by their makers.  The workshop introduces the historic witch bottle, its construction and some of its grim contents.  The class will then explore its modern incarnation and different versions used in modern spirituality and everyday ritual for positive intention and magical inspiration.   Guidance on various materials, plants, resins, and their historical, astrological correspondences will be covered.

Using the knowledge learned, each person will create and decorate their own personalised witch bottle for a magical aim.  All supplies and notes are included and you take home what you make.   You can bring in any small item that has special meaning for you to include in the Witch bottle, such as an amulet, crystal, stone, feather, scroll etc!

Cost: £30.00
