TAKE A LOOK AT THE MANY CRAFTING OF THE WITCH CLASSES BEING OFFERED HERE BELOW. YOU HAVE MANY CHOICES OF GREAT CLASSES…
The many workshops listed below are focused offerings within The Academy of Pagan Studies. They have been, and are being, developed to provide those interested in expanding and enhancing their experience and knowledge of the Craft in an educationally intensive environment. The vast majority of the topics below are also covered within our Wiccan Training Program, however we recognize that there is always room for more intensive study.
Crafting the Witch Series: Enchanted Oil, Incense & Brews • The History • How it is used in general • Making it better for your usage • Recipes • Fine tuning your skills in this area Bring your open minds, a pen and a notebook. This is a great class for many who wish to gain knowledge in the art of working with oils, incense, and baths, making and creating amazing recipes with purpose. $49.00 which includes Supplies and booklet
Crafting of the Witch: The Kitchen Witch’s Herbal Soap Making • The History • The making of your soap from scratch • The many methods of soap making • Using essential oils and herbs • Making soaps for magickal purposes • Creating your own recipe • Why make your own soaps Have you ever browsed through a shop and wondered how all those lovely soaps, were made? Perhaps you’ve already tried your hand at making them and wish to refine your technique? This workshop is for you! Get ready for some creative fun with experienced instructors and hands-on learning. Until around 1916, making soap at home was commonplace. Using wood or plant ashes and leftover animal fats, families produced their own soap for cleaning their clothes and themselves. It has become a lost art for many, but many of us have enjoyed making our own soaps from scratch. In recent years, back-to-the-landers and simple-living adherents have revived the homemade soap-making process — but it’s not only in favor with those who leave the big city for rural life or those with an anti-commercialist bent. For anyone interested in living as self-sufficiently as possible, it makes good sense to make your own soap. If you’re ready to start making soap at home — and reaping its many benefits. You will be able to walk away with soaps you made and created your own recipes for. $49.00 for this class – Supplies are included in cost:
Crafting the Witch: Making The Witches Wand • History • Making of A Wand • Wandlore • Consecrating ritual for the wand A real wood wand making class for everyone of all ages and skill sets. Participants will be making their own wands. No one else will have a wand exactly like yours and no two wands are alike, since you will be designing and making your own wand. No prior wandmaking or toolworking experience required. You will learn… The history of wandlore. The magical properties of woods used for wandmaking. How to make a wand from raw materials and miscellaneous items like hair, feathers, herbs, liquids…
Every attendee will leave the class with their very own custom designed wand ready for magical workings and spell casting. Like the Magick Staff, magick wands have been around for a very long time. Some of the first depictions of a wand come from Egypt, in the hands of Pharaoh. Not only did he carry a scepter for his kingdom, but also a wand. He was a ‘God’ after all. And magick was supposed to be part of his royal talents. Making your own Magick Wand is a very magickal thing, and an excellent way to connect with the magick inside you. Some witches and wizards work with several Wands, one for each different kind of spell while some use a single Wand for all their magickal workings. Utilizing your intuition, your spirit, your ideas, your intentions and your hidden talents, the Wand you make will be truly Magickal and Powerful. Your wand is made depending on your artistic nature or simply what calls you.
Begin by searching and finding a branch whose shape and size attracts your attention that’s suitable for you to use as a wand. If you do not find one laying on the ground already and have to take one from a tree, do ask permission and don’t forget to say thank you. $49.00 includes all supplies… and booklet.
Crafting the Witch: Making Your Temple / Altar Cloth • The History • How is it used • The planning and scaling of it • Creating and making of your personal Temple Cloth • Consecrating ritual for your new Temple Cloth • Protecting your sacred space • Keeping it sacred This idea was created by me, from looking at our past, where we are now and where we are heading as Witches of the 21st and 22nd Century and beyond. A tool that has and will become a vastly adaptive ritual item that many Witches, can use in their daily workings, whether at home or travelling. A personal temple space that you design, create and build just for you and your uses, for ritual, spell work, communicating and conversing with the Gods and Goddesses. Your own sacred space that when opened and placed out becomes an instant sacred space. Depending on the size you create and design, you should be able to sit or stand in the middle of your temple cloth, create sacred space and begin your magickal workings. When made you will keep your Temple Cloth in a cloth or leather case made specifically for your portable sacred space. A space that is consecrated and ready for your personal uses at all times. This is a unique and useful tool for us as Witches or any spiritual person that does ritual at home or while traveling. Temple Cloths will be sold on Charmedbystarr.com for $150.00 so here’s your chance to make your own. YOUR NEEDS FOR THIS CLASS: Purchase 4’ x 4’ (if you wish to go wider or bigger you are welcome to do so) material in natural fabric, silk, cotton, rayon etc. then have it cut in a complete circle.
