- 'et occultè, et aperte' -
The Hawstead Echo gathers and produces news, lifestyle and current affairs from across the Hawstead & Holy Mound Region. The current edition carries pieces on Vow Share, Shared Intelligence, Challenging the Sky Rodders, a feature on Dandelions, Memory Theatre from The Ravenwood Players, news on the winner of The Junior Flying Cup, enrolment for a new Folk Academy course on Symbols & Rituals, plus much more.
The Hawstead Echo is a broadsheet sized newspaper which is currently in the making. It builds on my longstanding research into a series of unusual C17th hand painted devotional panels, using them as the basis for an imagined alternate world - where politics and lifestyle resemble much of our own contemporary experience, with a crucial difference being that in Hawstead magick is foregrounded as commonplace, utilitarian and everyday. However, not everybody agrees on how it should be used.
The Hawstead Echo will be available to buy, in shops and online, when ready.
