Women and Witchcraft is heading to Melbourne

If you are looking for any excuse to celebrate the power of women with an Art Exhibition and Dinner, here is your chance. Passionate foodie, cooking instructor and renowned queen of artisanal pop-up dinners across Melbourne, Chef Ella Mittas, is pleased to present Women and Witchcraft; A Celebration of Power.
Kicking off at the Abbotsford Convent on November 23rd from 6-9pm and running till December 2nd, this exhibition is a must attend. This self-curated event will be showcasing works from a range of all female artists, and how they interpret the feminine divine in its magical and supernatural forms, will all the artwork being on display at St. Heliers Gallery, and will also feature a series of 5 course themed dinners inspired by the pagan Sabbat, Beltane.
The dinner will draw from Beltane’s message of abundance and fertility on all levels, especially when the earths energies are in its heights in the late spring and early summer season. Foraged, flowers, fresh and fired ingredients will all be on show throughout the exhibition.
Ella has been creating specialised dinners across Melbourne for over 3 years, with Women and Witchcraft; A Celebration of Power making its debut with an attached art exhibition. She started doing these events because she loved food and cooking and had experienced a hard time in the hospitality experience with the toxic nature of bulling taking place. She said for her “this event is about celebrating being an outcast and the power of the female community at large”
This exhibition is purely female, with female musicians, winemakers and artists and the exhibition will also feature a team of female floor staff, provided by Merchant Catering, a social enterprise that provides hospitality training and employment to women of refugee backgrounds. YEAH THE GIRLS.
