A class devoted to amulets, talismans and magic! Jewellery often doubles as protection. Materials, patterns and shapes are chosen for a reason, and these often go way back in history. We will see magical books and grimoires from the Middle Ages, study the meaning of numbers and colours and also see how amulets can be rendered ineffective and spells become undone.
In the end, we will see what these hopes and fears encapsulated in jewellery tell us about the lives and dreams of the women who owned these items.
