Witchcraft and Wizardry


Come join our coven of wizards and witches as we circle in the forests of Willowell to brew potions and learn our craft. We will explore the woods, tell stories, sing magical songs, play games, stir the cauldron and discover plants around the forest that we can use to craft our magic.

Led by witches Julia and Alexandra, masters of the herbal lore, young Magi’s will gain true knowledge of the herbs and plants growing around the woods of Vermont so they may continue to brew useful herbal potions for healing and a long life of fun.
