Learn all about the 17th century witch hunts and how witch pots were used.
Get hands on and have a go at making your very own witch pot with our trained potter.
Witch pots were believed to protect your family and house from an attack by a witch’s curse and ensure you came to no harm.
Come and see our very own apotropaic markings above the fire place which were designed to ward off witches. We have recently had confirmation that these unusual markings on the fireplace at Revolution House are protection marks designed to ward off witches. The apotropaic markings (commonly referred to as anti-witch marks) depict a double ‘V’ which is a reference to the Virgin Mary Protector of Life and Family. Markings like this were usually placed near openings or windows with the intention of keeping witches or evil spirits out.
Entry to Revolution House is free, however donations are welcomed to help us deliver more great events.
