Magical Dirts, Dusts, and Powders CLASS with Papa Gee
June 22, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm$20.00
How to collect, work with, and make your own dirts, dusts, and powders in the Southern Folklore Tradition. From Graveyard Dirt, Goofer Dust, Magnetic Sand, Red Brick Dust, and Highly Perfumed Sachets to the dredging flour used in preparing Fried Chicken and the sweet and spicy sprinkles on Cinnamon toast — Powders are everywhere in both African American hoodoo and European American folk magic.
In Papa Gee’s hands-on class, you will learn how to tap into this vital form of magic, and he will guide you as you prepare two powders — one to jinx your enemies and one for the establishment of domestic happiness and prosperity in the home. This is the same class that Papa Gee taught at the 2019 Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Heritage Festival in Forestville, CA.
4:30 – 5:45 Class $20
limit 10 students
A minimum of 3 students required to hold class—advance tickets required. PARKING – please park at Wilson Trust Bank in order to leave room for store customers.
