Theban script, also known as the witches’ alphabet, is used by modern witches to encode their writing for spellwork, entries in one’s Book of Shadows, or to carve into wands or candles.  In this class, we will use a mixture of simple techniques and games to learn how to read and write in Theban.  During the second half of the class, we will spend time writing a haiku or short poem to transcribe into Theban script on large paper.  Students are encouraged to present their work to the group.  All materials will be provided.  ​​​

Come learn about the Tarot and get inspired to draw!  In this class, we will use drawing as a method for paying attention to the details of the cards to gain a better understanding of their meanings.  The first half of the class will focus on the minor arcana, and I will present a simple method of understanding the cards for beginners.  Students are encouraged to draw as they take notes.  Then we will focus on drawing some of the cards from the major arcana, whether you want to recreate the imagery or design your own interpretation.  We will use the drawings to teach each other about the meaning of the major arcana card(s) we designed.  If you’re feeling ambitious, you might end up creating your own Tarot deck after this class.  Please come to the class with your own art materials, such as paper/index cards, pencils/markers, or whatever you prefer that isn’t too messy.
