Banishment Workshop with Groundwork and Addaction a great success

Our thanks go to Lucy Stein, Natalie Gyll-Murray and Josie Cockram for putting on a fabulous workshop at the Museum of Witchcraft & Magic last week.  People from all over Cornwall visited the Museum on Thursday to take part in a workshop that involved beach combing, charm making, a recitation (and recording) of a powerful banishment spell and a ritual performed in the harbour.

The banishment ritual:  natural, biodegradable objects imbued with the participants’ desires and troubles are cast into the beyond.

It was a great day with perfect weather and a lovely atmosphere.  We hope to do more in the future!

Groundwork also has a website and towards the end of next month, you’ll be able to read a text that Lucy will write about the workshop and listen to the spell that was recited on the day.  In the meantime, you can find out a bit more about the project and listen to a podcast made by artist Abigail Reynolds: groundwork.art/ also twitter and instagram.
