In the Middle Ages, medical treatment could include powerful charms: spoken or written words believed to protect or heal a patient. 

In this online session for the Cambridge Festival, you will hear about some of the charms people used.

Using recipes copied in medieval England (but using items you will be able to find around your home), Intellectual Forum Senior Research Associate Dr Kat Hindley will be your guide as you make some middle-aged inspired charms.

The workshop is currently full, but you can join the waitlist below.
