Spells & Hexes, popular as ever

 

ludlowmedieval-2016-1

Last weekend, I ran a Scrivener’s Stall for Ludlow Medieval Fayre, at which I provided Spells, Recipes & Hexes to an astonishingly eager public. Lovely event! I wore a dubious medieval costume (blanket, kilt pin and big hat) and never looked up for four hours – except once to quell a squabble in the queue about whose turn it was.

People of all ages told me what they wanted, and then to a greater or lesser extent we collaborated on the spell, which I wrote on the parchment in my best italic.  Then we lit a stick of red sealing wax, and they applied the stamp.  Heads craned.  Several people asked me if the spells would work.

It was such fun that I’m keen to do it again – so if anyone you know needs a spell-writer for an event, then I’m your inky-fingered poet…
