About Wand Making Workshop
Learn about the history of wandlore, the magical properties of wand woods and cores, and the importance of combining 4 elements - wood, core, length, and design to create your ideal wand.
After a brief lecture you'll choose up to 2 different kinds of wood to make your wand (from 10+ varieties we provide). Next you'll sand and file your wand to create a completely unique design. Then you'll select a core to place inside your wand. At the end of the workshop, we bring all the witches & wizards together for a very special wand dedication ceremony.
No one else in the wizard's world will have a wand exactly like yours! At Worthwich - the wizard or witch CHOOSES the wand.
In this workshop you will learn...
The history & art of wandlore.
Types of wands used by famous witches & wizards.
The magical properties of woods used for wand making.
The magical uses of wand cores.
The significance of wand lengths.
How to choose the type of wood and core that best matches your magical desires.
How to make a wand from raw materials.
How to carve your wand with unique designs and symbols.
Beginner level woodworking skills.
How to dedicate your wand and prepare it for magical work.
Every attendee will leave the class with their own personalized wand ready for magical workings and spell casting.
No prior wand making or tool working experience required. All materials & tools provided for you. Witches & wizards under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult (18+), who must stay for the class to assist them as needed.
BRINGING A CORE - If you so wish you may bring with you a core for your wand. Your core is an item of great magical significance to you, it is the source of your power. It is the magic within your wand and yourself. Choose it well. The core must be a small and narrow item as it will need to fit inside your wand. Wand sizes vary and limits on core width vary with them. To ensure your core will fit in any wand wood available it should be flexible like hair, feathers, paper notes, herbs, or liquids.
IS IT FOR KIDS? Actually, no. Our wand making classes were created and designed with ADULT witches & wizards in mind. You'll work with sand paper and files to create a unique design. The physical labor required can make it hard on little hands. Kids are welcome to attend but they will need an adult to accompany them and help them out during the class. Our classes tend to be mostly adults so don't be afraid to attend as an older witch or wizard!
