Sticks and Staffs

Sticks and staffs can be used for a variety of practical and magickal purposes.
Here at Arcanus, William Wilson creates beautiful pieces made from a combination of hazel wood and antler
.
Sticks can be made to your individual requirements or bought from stock.



 
 
The majority of our sticks are hazel, and as a rule, are generally not over straightened.

We use deer antler and twisted hazel for the handle, a decorated collar, and antler ferrule - or a combination of the three.

We prefer our sticks to be left as 'long' as the hazel shank allows - if you would prefer a particular length, that is not a problem.

 All sticks are finished with several coats of yacht varnish.

 

The photograph above shows a pentacle embedded in the handle.

Please use the contact form if you wish to comission a particular type of stick, or alternatively call into 'Mrs Darley's Herbal' in Bewdley Museum in Worcestershire and take a look at our current stock.



Thank you for your interest in our sticks and staffs

















 
SEPTEMBER 2017

The full September moon - The Harvest Moon - occurs on the 6th of the month and brings us a beautiful golden orb, whilst  the new Wine moon is born on the 20th. The Wine moon was considered by the ancestors to be blessed by the gods and  beneath which prophecies were made for the dark times to come.
The Autumn Equinox occurs on the 22nd at 21.01BST and is the time when day and night are of equal length, after which, we begin the descent into the darkness as quieter times beckon.
From the 9th, the Piscid meteor shower is on view, albeit there are only around 10 meteors per hour on view. It does however, continue throughout the month and into October too.
May the season of Autumn bring you peace and abundance as the Earth's harvest bears its final fruits.
