Witches & Bitches

Verena Krüger
German, English

What is a witch? Does magic exist? What does the broom have to do with intoxication? And what do witches, executioners, whores and gamblers all have in common? Why were there far fewer witch burns in the Middle Ages than in the early modern times? How come that people were convinced that witches had wild sex with the devil and what role did the church play? What happened at a witch trial and why did the supposed witch have to be burned?

Immerse yourself in a time when faith, superstition, torture, sex, prostitution and execution went hand in hand.

Find out why the hangmen had to wear bells, how they, though ostracised, managed to attain a modest level of prosperity and what his sideline as a pimp and the sale of bodily fluids had to do with it.

This workshop also provides insights into the basics of rituals, spells, and the power of herbs. Bring some magic into your life and learn how to enchant your everyday life with common kitchen herbs and spices!
