Welcome to the Cottage of the Hedgewytch

The Cottage of the Hedgewytch was originally founded by Dawn R. Jackson in 2004. When the Cottage disappeared into the aether, it was very hard for some to accept. A thoughtful reader was kind enough to rework the site for the modern web, preserving its original old-style charm. The Cottage is now run by an Arteful Anonymous Witch, the original author of the popular series on The Wise & Subtle Arte of Reading Cards, who took it upon herself to keep Dawn's legacy alive. These gestures have grown into what you see before you today.

Here in the Cottage you will find treasures of many kinds, from the famous HedgeWytchery Method of reading cards, poetry, essays, folk tales, lore, myths, and more. If you are a practitioner on the Traditional Path of the Craft as I am, please explore what is offered herein at your leisure.
