Accio Wand, Learn From The Best At This Free Harry Potter Choreography Workshop

Make some space next to your pen licence, your Wand Mastery Certificate is just a few classes away, and it’s being held by wand wizard (aka fight choreographer Paul Harris) from the Harry Potter flicks.

Just as he taught Harry, Hermoine and Ron, Harris will be taking students through everything from wand etiquette to the nuances of casting a near-perfect wingardium leviosa across a series of wand workshops.

The 45-minute classes welcome beginners and seasoned wand czars alike to fine-tune their spell-casting with other to-be wizards in group classes running from Friday 20 March to Sunday 22 March. 

OG wand-wielder, Harris, is responsible for several epic scenes in the Harry Potter story, most notably the wand battle in Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix, and is appearing in Melbourne as part of the Harry Potter pop-up store in the Myer Basement. 

The workshops are 100% free, but registration is essential. It’s probably worth letting Snape know you won’t be making it to his Defence Against The Dark Arts class, too.

THE DETAILS

What: Wizard Combat Masterclass
When: Friday 20 March to Sunday 22 March
Where: Myer Basement, 314-336 Bourke Street, Melbourne
