About The Event
If you’re fascinated by the mysterious images and symbols of the tarot cards, but don’t know where to start, this afternoon class is for you. It starts with a look at the structure of the full tarot deck, and then concentrates on the meanings of the number cards. You’ll meet the four suits (pentacles, cups, wands and swords), then kings, queens, pages and dashing knights, and finally your number symbolism for understanding the number cards - also called the minor arcana. Sue will then teach you the core technique of actually doing a tarot reading, and there will be practical exercises for everyone to try out. The full afternoon is packed with activities, providing a structured, fun interactive environment. You will go home with a solid basis for understanding this beautiful and intriguing divination system — and you’ll be able to do three-card readings for yourself.
Sue Terry is a Treadwell’s in-house tarot reader, who brings years of experience to her teaching. She’s admired not only for her expertise and accuracy as a tarot reader but is much-loved on account of her personal warmth and inclusive ethos; her courses sell out quickly.
You must bring your own Rider Smith Waite deck (or buy one on the day) — all other supplies and refreshments are included.
This workshop can be taken on its own, or before (or after) our Absolute Beginners class which concentrates on the major arcana.
