Make Your Own Tarot Deck
…and Learn to Read While You Craft It!
with Perry Kroeger
10:30 am – 5 pm

Perry learned how to read the Tarot by making his own deck.  Working along side his favorite book of Tarot meanings, Perry collaged individual cards that illustrated all the major and minor arcana, and court cards. This process produced his “Classic Hollywood Tarot” that he reads for clients with to this day.  Now Perry wants to pass on this technique to you.

Collage, paint, or draw your way into understanding the complicated meanings of all 78 cards and experience an organic way to learn the cards by using magazine cut-outs, google imaging, memes, your own art, or countless other sources.  Whether you consider yourself an artist or not, you will find endless opportunities to honor your divine imagination and have an enlightening visionary experience.

Perry will cover all angles via slides, video, comedy, and easy inter-active reading techniques so that by the end of the day long class you will have produced designs for three or more cards, and also know how to create an entire deck.  Not interested in Tarot?  Then let him show you how to create your own oracle or meme deck!

Claim your own personal mythology and adventure down the fascinating road of crafting your very own one-of-a-kind customized deck.
