One of the most versatile items in any Witch’s toolbox is the cord. Traditional covens keep a set, and many powerful rituals require them. From handfastings to initiations, the cord plays a major role in the rites of the Craft. Intense bindings, protections, love spells and devotional works are just some of the common uses.
Cord magic is simple and the necessary components are readily available as well as easy to disguise, so it's perfect for practitioners who value discretion, privacy and secrecy. But don’t let it's basic nature fool you: knot spells have been revered—and feared—for centuries. Find out why, and put this practice to work in your own life. Explore the history and myriad uses of knots and cords with Salem’s own High Priestess of Talismans, Sandra Mariah Wright. Part of this workshop will allow you the time and space to create a Witch's Ladder for yourself with the supplies provided. Feel free to bring small items related to something you are working on to add personal touches to your spell.
