Thank you to Keen for sponsoring this episode! Today, we geek out over Witch-CRAFTING! Witch and yarn artisan Nani Romanoff talks with us about working Magick through fiber arts, including its meditative qualities, and using yarn to create incredible spells and talismans. We also explore the crucial but under-appreciated use of texture in a spell’s components. Kanani and Courtney talk about their participation in the Portland protests, Hilary shares dandelion Magick, and we all drool over a s’mores ritual for kids. Listener question: Is it Magick or just our mind playing tricks?

Our Guest Today

Nani Romanoff is a Black and Native Hawaiian fiber artist and witch. Their cultural traditions are the backbone of both their art and their magical practice. Nani is a Grave Witch. For them, this means that much of their magical practice is centered around interacting with ancestors, spirits and the dead. They embrace magic that is often written off as “dark” or “spooky” and are very firmly pro-hex. They spend a lot of time knitting in graveyards. Their art can be found in their shop at CastAndCraft.etsy.com
