12/16/12 - Wandlore course is available for wizards & witches to register. Our first lesson shall be in a week.
For as far as she can recall, Matron Madrona Daventry was always meant to be a wandmaker. Out of all the stores & shoppes she ventured into the day she discovered she, like her family members before her, was a witch, she enjoyed venturing into, "Ollivanders," the most. The smell of the varnished wood gave her such a happy memory, and she always made sure to revisit the shopped year after year. Upon graduation from Hogwarts as, "Head Girl," and top Transfiguration student within Ravenclaw house, Garrick Ollivander, himself, took her under his wing as an apprentice, and taught her for many a year the art of wand making. Today, besides working as a master wandmaker, she also conducts much research on wood types from around the world and writes as an independent scholar in the fields of Alchemy, Wandlore, and Transfiguration. The Matron has a special interest in these three subjects.
2. Put some thought and effort into your assignments please. Also, if we're having a discussion on a certain topic, make sure you are explaining yourself entirely. Remember, when asked to construct a wand, 4-5 sentences makes a good paragraph explanation and more is wonderful. There should be no reason for your wand, considering your current skill level in the craft, to be done in a single sentence as you will most likely mess up the first few times due to the complexity of Wand Making.
