MAKE A WHITE WITCH WINDOW STAR WITH AUTHOR LINDA RAEDISCH
Translucent paper window stars are a Christmas tradition in Germany and the Netherlands. The patterns are endless. The White Witch Window Star, an original craft from Linda Raedisch's new book, The Old Magic of Christmas: Yuletide Traditions for the Darkest Days of the Year, is inspired by the Yuletide Goddess herself, an age-old figure who takes many forms and goes by many names: Perchta, Holle, Lucia, and Befana, to name just a few. Master the art of folding these simple decorations and get a jump on the coming sacred season. Display your Star in the window at home and - who knows? - the Yuletide Goddess may soon pay you a visit!
This hands-on workshop is offered on Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 1-2.30pm. Tuition is $30.00 which includes all materials fee and an autographed copy of The Old Magic of Christmas. Additional copies of both of Linda's titles will be available at 10% off each book. Space is limited so reserve your seat early.
Please do not bring in books bought at other locations for signing by the author.
Not so very long ago, Yuletide was as much a chilling season of ghosts and witches as it was a festival of goodwill. In The Old Magic of Christmas, you'll find a Christmas bestiary and a White Witch's herbal, as well as tips for delving more deeply into your relationship with the unseen. Bring the festivities into your home with cookie recipes and ornament making while brushing elbows with veiled spirits and discovering the true perils of elves. Rife with the more frightful characters from folklore and the season's most petulant ghosts, as well as allusions to fantasy literature (including Tolkien, Narnia, Harry Potter, and Hans Christian Anderson), this book takes you on a spooky sleigh ride from the silvered firs of a winter forest to the mirrored halls of the Snow Queen.
Linda Raedisch is also the author of Night of the Witches: Folklore, Traditions, and Recipes for Celebrating Walpurgis Night, which has been translated into French. For the past three years she has also been a frequent contributor to Llewellyn's annual publications. A north New Jersey native and lifetime paper artist, Raedisch draws inspiration from the natural world as well as folklore, mythology, and fantasy literature. Like the Narnian White Witch herself, she lives in a house located between two hills and marked by a lamp post which always wears a crepe-papier Witch's hat on Halloween and Walpurgis Night (May's Eve). At Yuletide, of course, her windows are filled with stars.
