Ancient Hazel project

The art of Divining – Don’t miss this opportunity to see if you have the power!

Spend an afternoon learning about the ancient art of hazel divining with Martin Allen. 

Divining, using a forked rod of hazel, has been used over the centuries to determine the presence of water, minerals, witches, liars and even treasure.  In the hands of certain people the hazel rod twists or revolves under rhabdic force when passing over the items to be detected.  Using both hazel forks and modern right angled wire rods, participants will be able to see if they have the knack and learn more about the history of this ancient art.
