Workshop

Willful Bane: the Joy of Hex

Featuring Byron Ballard

Sunday, August 11

10:45 am

St Mary Salon 2 [map]

Full Schedule

Willful Bane: the History, Techniques and Ethics of Hexing Willful Bane is about the ethics of banework, the history of it in Appalachian folk magic, plus lots of practical experience that includes dollies, sachets, vinegar, egg bindings, marshmallows etc.This is one of the most fraught and controversial parts of what I--and other traditional rootworkers--do. The criticism comes from all sides, too. You will find yourself reprimanded by members of the Pagan community who follow "the law of return" or the "three-fold law" that constrains them from putting anything they deem negative into their universe. We'll dive into history, legend, techniques and--perhaps most important--ethics. Come learn about the joy of hex.
