Cards and Cartomancy, Yesterday and Today with Dan Cassar Join
award winning card game designer Dan Cassar for a tour of the history
of the Tarot, playing cards and oracle cards from around the world!
Discover how cards have been used as both gaming and divination devices,
and then learn the basic techniques of how to create and distribute
your own decks of Oracle, Tarot and other kinds of cards.
We’ll explore how from their first appearance in fourteenth century
Europe straight through to the present day, cards have fascinated us.
Guided by the hand of fate, the deck of cards – originally meant for
gambling – came to represent the entire universe, encompassing the past
and the future for the curious souls who seek to unlock their mysteries.
The first half of this session will be dedicated to the history and
development of different types of cards for both divination and gaming,
and the second half of the session will focus on techniques for
creating, printing and distributing decks of your own design. 90 minutes
