Workshops for 2017

10 AM Opening Ceremony

Presented by: Teresa Hedgewife
Bio:Teresa is a Heathen Hedge witch and has been participating in Savannah PPD since 2003. This year she will sponsor a workshop to honor Mother Earth by creating Harvest Corn Husk Dollies. Stop by and create harvest dolls for your hearth!

11AM Music and Spellwork
How can certain types of music help with spellwork and what kinds of music can harm it?
Presented by: Stevie
Bio: He was born and raised in GA. He comes from a very spiritual background with a strong belief in Deity, not the universe, but Deity. And he walks to the beat of a very different drum that sings to his heart and soul every day. To him spellwork and stepping into circle goes hand-in-hand. His grandmother on his dad’s side taught him the ins-and-outs of hoodoo and the grandmother on his mother’s side taught him how to commune with Spirit. He has been a pagan and a witch for over 20 years and believer that you never stop learning the ways of Deity.

12PM Wand Making
Wands are portable and do not require an altar or sacred space for operation. Wands can obviously be purchased, but for those who prefer to work with the energies of nature, it is often nice to make your own. During this workshop, we will learn a way of making one of your own using natural materials.
Presented by: Ogregod
Bio: TBA
Workshop is free to attend, but there is $5 Supply Fee if you would like to make your own wand.

1PM Harvest Dollies, Creating and Empowering
We will create corn husk dollies and discuss their use as a means of capturing the spirit of the harvest. A short spell will be used to empower our dollies.

2PM Spirit Dolls & Poppet Magic
A poppet is a life-like figure or doll made to represent a person or animal and is used in ritual, magic and spell-craft to effect change through the application of sympathetic or imitative magic. A doll is like an talisman, or an altar statue – its energy starts and grows with the creator, and after it is made the owner also adds his/her own energy. When used in ritual poppets can also represent various aspects of the Goddess and God. In this workshop you will create your own beautiful spirit dolls or poppets.
