Worthwich School of Witchcraft & Wizardry presents our 2-hour woodworking and wandlore class, fully guided and instructed by the professional wand makers of Worthwich. Worthwich is the ORIGINAL real wood wand making workshop. Get ready, this is unlike any wand making you've ever done before!
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 get to 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 (no hot glue and chopsticks here).
Finally, you'll select a core for your wand. Your core is placed inside your wand's handle in a specially drilled hole. 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 wizarding world will have a wand exactly like yours! At Worthwich - the wizard CHOOSES the wand.
In this workshop you will learn...
The history & art of wandlore.
Types of wands used by famous witches & wizards.

The significance of wand lengths.
How to choose the type of wood and core that best matches your magical desires.

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.
--- More Important Info---
No prior wandmaking or toolworking 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. Younger witches & wizards often struggle with the sanding and filing portion.
Each attendee that wishes to make a wand needs to purchase a ticket for the class. Adults accompanying children do not need to purchase a ticket unless they too want to make a wand.
Tickets are non-refundable but may be sold/transferred to another person for the same class date. Tickets are not transferable to another wand making class.
