Intro to Altar Making


The witch's altar is the center of their work- it can be a place or worship, a functional part of a spell, a place to house ritual tools, or even just a consecrated workspace. The witch's altar can take many shapes and forms, can be grand or modest, but it's role in magical practice can never be overstated. 

Join Catland co-owner Melissa Madara for an in-depth introduction to the world of personal altars and the art of altar making. Students will get a look at some of the Catland house altars, as well as explore the various types of altars throughout spiritual practice. 

$15 per student
