The Witchery, brainchild of Katie Karpetz, is Edmonton's own little Internet occult shop that brings traditional European witchcraft and Southern-style conjure magick to the North. Back with us again at Royal Bison for for both weekends, The Witchery is run by a practicing witch with a touch of hoodoo influences. Mesmerized by herbs, religious iconography, and the Dead, The Witch is a lover of low magick who believes that everyone’s world can be enhanced by the use of spellwork. Catch her at the Bison both weekends, follow Katie on Instagram (@witcheryway) and Twitter (@thewitcheryca) to see what she’s conjuring, and read on to discover what inspires her work.
