Troubadours of Albion Witchcraft Community

What's New?

Take a look at our new Craft Items page, which gives you access to all sorts of bespoke goodies, from hallmarked jewellery to flower arrangements, all made by us to your design.

We've started adding stories from the Mabinogion - first one, Lleu Llaw Gyffes has been added, but there are more on the way.

Look out, too, for the Troubadours of Albion Witches Brouhaha, an activism group set up to help uphold our values.  Join up here.

The Witches Brouhaha section on the website has been moved to the Elements' pages, under Fire.

Then again, if your tastes don't run to the cutting edge of politics, try our 'blog pages.  Still fiery enough to burn fluffies, but they won't singe your seat!

Join Us in our Circle Round

Whilst you might not be able to draw a perfect circle the like of which Giotto - the great Italian painter of the middle ages - was renowned, and you might not have a pair of compasses or a spike and a length of string to hand very readily, it's still very much more than possible to draw a circle using just pen and eye.

This is, essentially, how it's done: Establish the centre of your circle. 

You can mark it in some way, or just remember it - but obviously marking it is better.  Once you  have this, mark out north, south, east and west equidistant from it, at the boundary of the circle you want to draw.  Then mark the four directions in between and then, unless the circle you wish to draw is small enough to be drawn with just these  eight points, all you need do is join the dots.  Of course, if the circle is bigger, mark the points in between, and so on until you feel comfortable with drawing the circle from the points you've marked.

A circle is one of the most powerful symbols - of protection, of continuation, of all sorts of things.  It is roughly the shape of the stars and planets, and  has  been a comforter to our ancestors into antiquity
