What is Hearth Craft?
Hearth Craft or Hearth witchcraft is a form of traditional witchcraft found across many cultures that is based within the home. It involves care for the home and family and is often associated with folk magic. This style of witchcraft tends to be very pared-down and come-as-you-are, with common household items used as tools rather than ceremonial items. It is also focused on need-based magic – the needs for food, clothing, shelter, child care, elder care, cleanliness, health, and familial or community connection.
Some consider Hearth Craft an interchangeable term or related to Kitchen Witch and Hedge Witch. It is, in a way. The magic of the kitchen, the home, the garden, and the hedge or boundaries between worlds are all interconnected and there’s no real way to make a surgical incision to separate them.
One of the things we see all the time in the Pagan community is a desire to feel more connected to practice without burn out. A way to interact with community in a open-hearted way is another need of most Pagans we know and talk to. We truly believe that a connection to the hearth and home, no matter if that’s a studio apartment, your mom’s house, or a homestead, is a way to solve both of these problems. Hearth Craft Zine is how we want to help.
