Please arrive by 9.50am. Start is 10am with a break for lunch and finish at 4pm.
For many centuries, knitting, spinning and sewing have been used to make magic. This workshop
will explore the magical history and uses of these age-old crafts. We will look at examples of textile
magic in the Museum’s collections and learn how the repetitive, meditative activities of spinning,
knitting and sewing induce a light trance state which is ideal for the practice of magic, and how this
state can be harnessed by the witch to create all kinds of spells and charms. The workshop will include
a variety of practical projects for you to make including protective charms, charms for babies, spirit
houses, house spells and much, much more. The workshop will include full instructions for all the
projects so that you can carry on making things at home. A range of threads and fabric will be
provided for you to work with but PLEASE BRING your own knitting needles and sewing needles
as these will become important magical tools which will be personal to you. Please also bring a
notebook and pen or pencil.
Levannah Morgan is a Devon-based witch and magical practitioner with forty years’ experience of
the craft. She has taught and lectured widely at witchcraft, Pagan and magical gatherings and her
