Poetry, ritual and magical practices have long histories which intertwine. The language or symbols, which call particular existences into being, are treated differently in every time period, some with reverence, some with disrespect: that which names itself as 'spell' changes accordingly.
For this weekend, before the first light of Imbolc, we'll be crafting and casting, sharing meals, sharing poetry and dabbling in visual manifestation practices. Expect crackling bonfires, various workshops, and the weaving of Brigid crosses.
The programme will be - as always - punctuated with suggestions, and open for contributions. There are many welcomed forms: workshops, extended conversations, trying out new ideas or working through your practice. If you’d like to propose something, this can be done when you arrive, or drop us a line beforehand.
Days normally run from 10am, stayers are welcome to join all or some of the scheduled events as they wish.
