Runes have been used as a form of language and a tool for divination and magic for over a thousand years within the Germanic and Scandinavian world. The runic characters and shapes can be written, chanted and danced to create magic, healing and energy. This introduction to runes will show people how to use runes in all areas of their lives and all participants will make and take away a basic rune starter set from this workshop.
