This is a beautiful way to honour and remember the wise women (and men) who were persecuted during the European witch hunts of the Middle Ages.

The dolls will be installed in the landscape when Denise has collected at least a million of them.

I made a doll at the Horniman Museum and added it to others that people were making on the night, but I am planning on making more at a Samhain gathering of witches and pagans, and encouraging others to do the same.

To make a doll

Take a roughly hand/palm sized piece of fabric, ideally in shades of red. Gather her up in the middle and tie a strip of fabric, ribbon, wool etc around her. Add a loop to suspend her from a tree.

Send completed dolls to Denise Rowe, 9 Elderberry Close, Stourbridge, DY8 3JN. You can contact Denise at helloearthdances@gmail.com or visit the website
