From the Magic Cottage … Paganism, Wicca, Witchcraft, Earth Magick, Shamanism, Ceremonial Magic, Ritual, Magical Herbs, Gypsy/Romany tarot readings, products, workshops & information 











Monday 29th December

Come dressed as your favourite God or Goddess for this fun evening.  It can be your patron God or Goddess, one you’d like to work with, or you can invent your own.  (A sense of humour is welcome!).  During the solstice ceremony, you will have an opportunity to step forward & introduce yourself as your chosen Goddess or God & tell us about your myth, powers & place in our lives.

Bring along your drum or other musical instrument to drive up the energy of the ritual.  Then join in some fun, fiery summer songs afterwards.   We encourage & welcome all contributions of food, fun, music, magic & song.

(For more information, click heading on left of this page.)






Join us and craft your own Magical Journal (Book of Shadows) in a fun 2-night workshop.  Your finished creation will be practical, easily accessible & lockable, with pages that can be added, rearranged or removed.  Decorative index pages denote each topic, including – ‘Magical Words’, ‘Dreams & Astral Voyages’, ‘Brews & Concoctions’, ‘Sabbats, Esbats & Rituals’.

On completion of your book you’ll take part in a ritual to consecrate and empower your magical creation.

When:  Mondays 12th & 19th January 2015

Playing with the Universe:


This series of workshops is about finding out how we, each, make magic work & how we make it fail.  It’s a Magic 101.  When we know the Rules of the Game, we can generate magic that is, individually, much more fun, much more interesting, much more exciting and much more satisfying … … unless you don’t want to …

Dates & times of workshops on the left.



I’ve had several people contact us looking for others interested in specific areas such as Ceremonial Magic, Kabala, Shamanism, etc.  If you are looking for someone that might share the same interest, email me or phone and I’ll try to put you in contact with each other.  I suggest that you use email, mobile phone or PO boxes as points of contact rather than home phone or home addresses to maintain privacy and anonymity until you feel comfortable & ready for closer contact.




Romany/Gypsy Tarot Readings are available during the week at Vermont and Saturdays at St Andrew’s Market.  Readings are $30 and you can book by phone or email, or just drop in and see us ... 

Good roads and fair weather,
