The House of Twigs website is a source for witchy media: articles, interviews, reviews, and more. Our writers create unique content for our site, and come from all parts of the path, contributing reflections on herbalism, the history of witchcraft, the divine feminine, rituals for personal empowerment, and astrology. This offers readers a place to engage with educational materials that are both historical and contemporary, informative and critical, and always magickal.
As the site gained more traction, we decided to createThe House of Twigs School of Ritual, where seekers can take educational courses in divination, tarot, astrology, the history of witchcraft, the lefthand path, practical magic, and so on. Thus The House of Twigs serves two purposes: Readers can engage with interesting articles on an ongoing basis, and for those looking to dive a bit deeper, the School of Ritual provides this service. We work to strengthen our community through the continued dissemination of knowledge, practical advice, and historical insight alike.
The House of Twigs is a natural outgrowth of Keven Craft Rituals which serves our audience in a creative and educational capacity. Begun in 2004, and run by Erika Fortner and Tad Ericson whom also run a brick n’ mortar studio & retail shop in Portland, Oregon –Queen Meb – q. Meb
