Val Thomas

Val Thomas is the Pagan Federation representative for Norfolk and author of the popular book of kitchen and traditional witchcraft "A Witch's Kitchen". Val has many years of experience in witchcraft and other magical practices, as well as being a trained medical herbalist. Over the years she has been a regular contributor to other publications, such as Quest and the Cauldron. Her herb walks organised by the Norwich Pagan Moot are always very popular and her talks are fun and informative at the same time. 

Creative Spellcraft & Opening

This year Val will be doing a workshop for the Harvest Moon Festival, as well as opening the festival.

Many of the "off the peg" spells found in esoteric textbooks have somewhat limited value for the modern practitioner. This workshop will look at some of these traditional spells, but then consider the basic principles of spellcraft and how they can be employed to craft useful and effective magic, which is relevant to our lives now.  We will also discuss how such operative magic can be relevant to The Great Work.
