A Common Craft

A commission by Blue Firth for Waking the Witch

First episode October 31st

A Common Craft is an episodic podcast that takes each exhibition location as a starting point to discuss the archetype of the witch, witchcraft and magic and how these subjects may affect our daily lives, sometimes without us even noticing. Explored through interviews and storytelling, each episode will present a journey through occult ideas, feminism, healthcare, gender and popular culture. As witchcraft becomes increasingly popular, Firth asks what we can learn from it's unorthodoxy and how it might make the future more magical for us all.

The podcast will develop as the exhibition tours to other locations in the UK. You will be able to listen to it here or subscribe to the podcast through your regular podcast provider.
