Brooklyn, New York
at a Secret Mansion and Garden
Inspired by the four elements—earth, air, fire, water—we concocted an unforgettable celebration in honor of the pagan festival of Sahmain. Enter into our enchanted garden, where you will encounter experiential alcoves for crafting elixirs and spells, fortune tellers, a puppet show, a fire tamer, a photo booth inspired by the elements, and a cryptic caravan where lost souls sell vintage treasures and oddities galore.
Taste nature at The Art and Science of Potions. Inside the laboratory of alchemy you can discover your inner witch, and the esoteric art of blending delicious and magical herbal elixirs. Yana Crow, concoctress and co-owner of Bennett Bitters will be your guide as you commune with the earth- element to formulate a unique personal potion that you can take home.
Theatrical performance by Belle Aykroyd of a scene from Romeo & Juliet.
Cast spells into the fiery cauldron with bespoke bottles découpaged with magick sigils by Blundering Dreamer. Let each unique bottle speak to you, and work with fire to create a benevolent witch’s spell to bring home and slip under your pillow.

Fortunes of the future told, tales of the past explored in tea cups and cards, as two master mediums transport you to other worlds in a glass room with vessels of water refracting both light and your deepest desires.
