To the wandmakers, 




Discover the hidden depths beneath surface the vaults of Edinburgh, untouched for centuries since the Great Edinburgh Fire. Step into a clandestine wand shop unlike any other, where secrets of ancient magic are waiting to be unlocked. As a fresh initiate at the Edinburgh School of Magic, your magical journey begins with the creation of your very own wand.

Choose Your Magical core

Crafting a wand is an intricate process, and the first decision is crucial – the choice of wood. Will it be the resilient oak, the supple beech, or the elusive ash? After the wood, dive into the ethereal options of crystal or fey skulls and discover the magical core that resonates with your inner magic.

Personalize Your Power

With the raw materials chosen, channel your creativity into weaving leather straps and charms for your handle. Then, breathe life into your creation with a burst of color as you paint your wand, making it an extension of your magical identity. Finish by sculpting the outside design.
