Sauerkraut Spell Making with Unfinished Business

12th Oct 2022

Explore recipes, community empowerment and activism over four workshops.

Please note: booking one ticket for 12th October means you are signing up to is all sessions, 12th October - 12th November.

Want to learn the art of making tasty, transformative sauerkraut? And use the power of words and spells to imagine new futures?

Sauerkraut Spell Making is a slow-paced, ritual-inspired workshop, over four sessions with Unfinished Business (Leo Kay and Anna Smith). We’ll explore recipes, art, community empowerment and activism to write our own spells and make sauerkraut together.

Sauerkraut is fermented cabbage - the transformation of a vegetable through interactions between unseeable micro-organisms into a more digestible and health giving food. This process conjures images of alchemy and magic, inspiring our spell writing - no creative writing experience necessary!

At the end of the experience, you will take away your own jar of sauerkraut, a copy of a collaboratively-made zine, and have the opportunity to share your spell/poem at a tasting event.
