Witchcraft is a practice that is rooted in folklore. But what exactly is  folklore and why is it important? Where do we find this lore and how do  we go about applying it to our modern lives? In this workshop we will  be discussing the many ways in which folklore informs the practice of  Witchcraft, whether we realize it or not. Additionally, we will cover  helpful methods for researching folklore in its many forms. Finally, we  will take a look at the ways in which we, as practitioners, can adapt  the lore to fit our modern Craft.
This is a 90-120 minute foundational level lecture.
