The ‘Old Ways’ Workshops 2021

Laetitia and Cassandra are now able to provide workshops at a social distance. While these rules apply, any indoor activities will be in St Buryan Village hall instead of Cassandra’s cottage.
Their thoughts and good wishes are with you all, stay healthy and please work with them on a resolution to this worldwide catastrophe. 
Take time out from your usual life and it’s stress by attending a spiritually nourishing weekend in the depths of West Cornwall. Visit a Wisewoman’s mystical cottage and experience their work.
For feedback on past Workshops visit the Testimonials page.
We have shortened the length of our workshops, (which includes the price) so they are workshops for one day instead of two. We will still offer all the aspects of our previous workshops by keeping to a timed schedule. We advise workshop attendees to arrange for childcare as we are unable to allow children at these events. Anyone who attends a workshops must at least 16 years of age.
(There is no obligation to attend these workshops in order or do all of them, just choose the ones that resonate with you. )
The first person to book a particular date decides on the workshop that will be assigned to it.
Please note that deposits paid to secure your place are non-refundable.

      • Hello Laetitia. I live in America. And I would love too! Actually that is one of my life dreams, is to go to England. To Cornwall! But my financial situation as it is will now allow it. Thank you for replying to my post! In my opinion, you and Cassandra are the true embodiment of what witches are!


  2. Hi Laetitia, the workshops are topics that I know I would learn a great deal from. I live 15 minutes away from the beach here in America. The sea magick would be most helpful. I would love to visit the UK, especially Cornwall’s sacred grounds and the museum. I really love your book Cassandra and hope you write another one. I wish someday I can attend both of your workshops.


  3. Had an amazing weekend with 2 great ladies on the Cunning folk magic. Was great to see how the cunning work for their community. Make the witch bottle spell was amazing,then we went to a very special place it was humbling. That night will stay with me I feel that a switch I have been searching for as finally been switched on.😊 Again thank you both for an amazing weekend xx
