Event website

Sunday Jul 21st from 5:00 PM – 7:30 PM
In this introductory tarot reading workshop, deck creator, Isabella Rotman, will delve into the systems at work in tarot and nurture your natural tarot reading skills. How do suits, numerology, archetypes, and context come together to form a card’s meaning? Can we read without memorizing every card (yes!), and how does our intuition and personal experience affect a reading? In this workshop, we will go through the foundational system of tarot, how to read for another person, and practice reading with a partner. No prior experience is necessary and all skill levels are welcome. Isabella will bring decks to share, so only bring your own deck if you prefer reading with it.
