The Nameless Arte conferences is all about traditional witchcraft, folk magic and cunning craft, and always has a great range of speakers. I've been to the past couple of events, and I'm eagerly looking forward to it this year, a bit later than usual, on Saturday 16 November 2019.
Here's a bit about the speakers for The Nameless Arte 2019:
Traditional Witchcraft: A Cornish Book of Ways is Gemma's most famous book. It has been hugely influential in the revival of interest in traditional witchcraft. She is also the author of The Black Toad: West Country Witchcraft and Magic and The Devil's Dozen: Thirteen Craft Rites of the Old One. Gemma lives and works in Cornwall and has long been active in reviving the ways of the working witch and "pellar". You can view her author page on Amazon.
Perhaps most famous for leading The Clan of Tubal Cain traditional witchcraft lineage, Shani describes herself as an occultist, mystic, Luciferian and traditional craft practitioner. She has written widely about the history of witchcraft, particularly the Robert Cochrane tradition and is an inspiring writer and speaker. I reviewed her book The Devil's Crown on A Bad Witch's Blog.
Author, esoteric researcher and magician David has been contributing to the modern occult revival since the 1980s, through talks and workshops as well as articles and books. His esoteric expertise covers a wide range of topics, including the Western Esoteric Traditions, including the Grimoire tradition and Ceremonial Magic, as well as British folklore and European mythology. You can view his author page on Amazon.
An occultist and writer from West Sussex, in his spare time Martin plays fiddle and dances with a masked border Morris side. He writes on the subjects of folk magic, mythology and the occult arts; in particular the manner in which they relate to traditional witch-lore and practices. His most recent work is Effigy: Of Graven Image and Holy Idol, and he is currently writing about witchcraft and magic in Sussex.
Jon’s particular research topic is historic belief in the supernatural: how people believed, what they believed and the criteria for experience. He lectures on the supernatural in early modern theatre and is currently examining the influence of fairy imagery on the witch trials, with a particular interest in a specific trial at the English port-town of Rye. I've blogged about his talk at the ASSAP conference and you can view his author page on Amazon.
Georgi has an interest in Asian spiritual traditions and currently is focusing his research on Shakta traditions, tribal cults and traditional medicine. He has an MA in Ayurvedic medicine and has explored the area of Vajikarana and the influence of religion and spirituality on the development of the Indian medicine.
The conference also has a market, which is perfect if you are looking for traditional witchcraft supplies and books on the subject. It is at the Balmoral Centre, Salisbury Avenue, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS07AU. Westcliff-on-Sea is very easy to get to by train from London via Liverpool Street Station.
