About the event

Witch bottles have been used for protection against negative magic  and ill-wishes since the middle ages, and remain popular in modern  magic. Discover the tactile world of witch bottles in this livestream  talk.

There is a long tradition  of magic being practiced in the home -  spells and charms to protect the home from maleficum are the most  common, as well as spells to bring in wealth and love. Evidence of these  spells have been found buried in the foundations of the houses. They  are known as witch bottles, and are attested in archaeology and in  textual records. However, modern practice has continued to use them for  positive outcomes as well.

This richly illustrated online talk looks at historical and  modern examples of witch bottles. Rebecca will also demonstrate how we  can make our own personalised witch bottle at home.
