Unfortunately due to low bookings, we have had to cancel this workshop. Stay tuned as we rearrange a new date with Lucya in 2024 - hopefully you can make the new date! Please do book early to support our events.

Amulets and talismans are magical items that protect or aid those who own them. There are many different kinds, used by cultures all over the world since ancient times. Discover all you need to know about them in this livestream workshop.

Although the words 'amulet' and 'talisman' are often used interchangeably, they're subtly different. 

  • Amulets are believed to have intrinsic properties that protect the wearer or attract luck, such as a four-leaf clover or an acorn, or religious symbols with inherent positive powers. 
  • Talismans are made and enchanted for a magical purpose, often inscribed with sigils, planetary symbols, or words. 

This livestream workshop will explore amulets and talismans in history and in the world today. We'll think about objects we have and keep for luck or that we feel are imbued with beneficial magic. 

We will also look at magical objects for the season of Yuletide and an appropriate visualisation for Winter Solstice protection. 

Finally, we will make an easy talisman with paper or card and pens or pencils. Please have with you some paper or card and pens or pencils


We will not be recording this workshop. One of the unique aspects of the College's online events is that they are highly interactive. Participants are encouraged to discuss and share with the tutor and the group. These sharings can be very personal, and some may not feel comfortable with them being recorded.
