To the hearth of the Creative Coven and my weaving of creative threads in remembrance of the Scottish witch hunts. My plaid is threaded through traditional oral storytelling, exploration of folklore, resurrection by the written word, evocation of inspired art, and reclamation of the ancestral keening ritual to sing their souls home.

Rowan established the Creative Coven to bring together creatives whose work was inspired by the Scottish Witch Hunts. In collaboration with Karen Strang, they have produced innovative sold-out performances, art, and workshops. The coven has grown and has some exciting events coming up in 2024. 



Our Vision is contemporary justice for the accused witches, as a symbolic redress of historic persecution, torture, and execution of thousands (mainly women) during the Scottish witch hunts. Our Mission is to explore the historical persecution of the Scottish witch hunts, through the evocative and emotive power of the arts. 



We believe in the acts of remembrance and reclamation to raise awareness of the Scottish witch hunts. We value all art forms as an active expression of political challenge to the injustice of the Witchcraft Act of 1563.


Rowan doesn't just tell you a story. She leads you straight into the heart and soul of it. She transports you to a magical land, and when you return, reluctantly, you will feel as if you have​ just emerged from a time machine, still tasting the Scottish salt air on your tongue”. (Jane Burns)
