About

Mountain Hedgewitch became a brainchild in early 2018, although it has been a pet dream since long before that. Deriving from old Irish pagan traditions, the items, spellwork and ideals have been combined with the practical uses of wortcunning, wildcrafting and homesteading to create a modern space for like-minded (or simply curious) folks to commune. It was created and is run by Mountain Hedgewitch, a one-woman crafter, and was later joined by the inspired artists who now contribute to The Cunning Folkery Shop.

Products found here are mostly wildcrafted and handmade, otherwise they are repurposed or rebuilt. All animal and plant products are ethically harvested and maintain the value they had while living. The hope is that they go to a home that cares for them as much as their creators and bring a sense of antiquity to each individual buyer.

Mountain Hedgewitch

Founder

      I’m a native Colorado artist who discovered the love of lore and nature at a young age. Magic was always present in my home and I have pursued the old world view of Celtic paganism ever since. I’m a training and practicing herbalist, solitary witch, artist and crafter. I aspire to one day become an accomplished hedgewitch so that I can continue to share that knowledge with others. Although, we all know the learning never stops.

      A majority of the items are hand- and homemade by me, if it isn’t harvested naturally and sold as-is. I simply love natural materials, particularly ones I have foraged or reclaimed myself, beside which I combine with my fascination of prehistory, ancient traditions, mythology and even the sometimes uncomfortable images of death. I desire to make things beautiful and original so that each purchase feels personal and sacred to the buyer. The desire is to intrigue, bewitch, beguile and rejoice with each and every customer.

The Veil blog is a chance to share pet projects, ideas, recipes, spellwork, homesteading tips, business confessions and funky spunks in an environment with like-minded (or simply curious) people. I am always happy to connect with anyone willing to give recommendations or ask questions.

Steelburner Welding

Welder

      Travis is the owner of a welding business in Durango, Colorado and has been a wonderful addition to the Cunning Folkery shop! 

    Although his materials are not as natural as some of the foraged ones, his artistic and smithing skills have created many art pieces, candle holders and support items that give that gritty, mid-modern appeal to ancient history. Not all metal workers have as much love for their craft as Travis.

Mystical Nomad

Metalsmith

    Apart from her ambitious scientific mind, Mystical Nomad has always found her calling in nature. A wanderer, an adventurer and a soothing soul, she creates many of the fine jewelry pieces featured in the Cunning Folkery Shop. Taking beauty from nature, she is able to put it in the hands of the people.

    She also has a passion for palm reading and the divine. A true pagan at heart.
