If you believe that all the best stories contain at least a little bit of magic, this workshop is for you. On this, Harry Potter’s birthday, we will be designing our very own magical systems. Spells, hexes, potions, portals, curses, prophecies, charms—whatever your magic of choice, we’ll learn how to shape it into an unforgettable tale.
