Our Witchcraft Courses

We offer a variety of courses to expand your grimoire, from all-encompassing beginner witchcraft classes to intermediate ritual and spell work in particular pathways, like Cottage Witchery, Autumn Magic, traditional and folk practices and more. We also focus on certain eras, like the Victorian time period and the colonial American folk experience, and the actual magic practiced at that time. No matter your interests, you're sure to find a class to enrich- and enchant- your practice.

 

You can find more about some of our individual classes below. All courses are taught by me, Sarah, and they are separated into sessions. Each session is different depending on the topic, but they can include lessons with detailed information, concept practice, discussion questions, and video demonstrations. 

Please note: We are currently in the process of shifting some of the content to the Thinkific platform for ease of assignment completion and easier roll-out. Enrollees may be asked to create a Thinkific account to participate in assignment fulfillment. We do not receive any kick-backs from Thinkific; they are simply used as a platform to house content.
