Episode 3: Becoming

Download Podcast

Witchcraft and the archetype of the Witch are explored through interviews, found sound, commissioned music and storytelling. This third episode of A Common Craft looks at presentations of witchcraft both public and personal. I talk to artist Leon Sadler, custodian of the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic Simon Costin and Sabat magazine founder and Editor-in-Chief Elisabeth Krohn.

A Common Craft is a series of podcasts about the archetype of the Witch, Witchcraft and magic and how these subjects may affect our daily lives- sometimes without us even noticing. Through interviews and storytelling, each episode will present a journey of occult ideas, feminism, healthcare, gender and popular culture. As Witchcraft becomes increasingly popular, I ask what we can learn from it's unorthodoxy and how it might make the future more magical for us all.

A Common Craft was made by Blue Firth commissioned on behalf of Waking the Witch, a touring exhibition which looks to the importance of craft, ritual and land on the practice of the ever shifting figure of the witch.
