A wand is the object through which a Witch or Wizard channels his or her Magick. It is made from wood and has a Magickal substance at its core.A wand is a quasi-sentient Magickal instrument through which a Witch or Wizard channels her or his Magickal powers to centralise the effects for more complex results. Most spells are done with the aid of wands, but spells can be cast without the use of wands.Every single wand is unique. and will depend for its character on the particular tree and Magickal creature from which it derives its materials. Moreover, each wand, from the moment it finds its ideal owner, will begin to learn from and teach its human partner.
The wand chooses the Wizard, Mr. Potter. It's not always clear why. But. I think it is clear that we can expect great things from you, Mr Potter. -Mr. Ollivander
In this class, students will learn the noble Art of Wandcrafting by creating their own Wand after being chosen by a particular wood. Students will then create a core to their wand via the many items we have available: feathers, shells, crystals, stones, etc..We encourage students to make their wand truly unique by bringing a piece of broken jewelry or other special object from a loved one or pet to add to their wand. Students will also learn the history of the wand and wandlore, how to use a wand for Spell use and for the direction of energy.
