10-02-2021 - Lenormand and Creative Cartomancy with Sara M. Lyons

Get to know the simple, straightforward art of Lenormand with Sara M. Lyons, artist, illustrator, and creator of the CUTE LITTLE LENORMAND deck and guidebook! In this light-hearted and easygoing workshop, Sara will introduce you to the basics of Lenormand. This traditional form of card reading has been around for centuries, and Sara makes it modern, fun, and inclusive.

In the first half of the workshop, you'll learn about Lenormand, the simple but potent symbolism of its 36 cards, and how to interpret 3-card vignettes and more complicated tableaux.

Then, in the second half of the class, you'll delve into the creative side of cartomancy by learning how to craft your very own unique deck! No previous Lenormand experience or artistic skill is required - all you need is a deck of traditional poker cards and your own creative magic. Together, we'll explore common archetypes, learn how to create and work with visual language, and develop a deeper understanding of magical symbolism.

Please bring:

  • a journal or notebook
  • a Lenormand deck if you have one
  • plain deck of playing cards or blank flash cards
  • art supplies + your creativity
  • all your questions!
