Witchcraft’s Artefacts - An Illustrated Lecture by Sara Hannant
Objects, exuding magic and mystery, emerge from the darkness of Cornwall’s much loved Museum of Witchcraft and Magic. Artist and photographer Sara Hannant has captured the essence of these carefully selected artifacts, which include wax dolls, wands, statues, daggers, pendants, robes and amulets. Some have been displayed at the museum for years, others have long been hidden in its archives. Using her own magical tool, the camera, she found that “it was best to photograph at night. This enabled the objects to emerge from the darkness, where it is said magic begins.” Tonight’s stunning visual lecture shows what her residency revealed. Sara’s books are Mummers, Maypoles and Milkmaids and forthcoming Of Shadows, One Hundred Objects from the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic.
