'''Conjuration''' is a branch of [[Transfiguration]]. Conjurations are distinguished from the other branches of transfiguration by their ability to transfigure the desired object from 'thin air'. Although some are simpler and are taught to younger students, most conjurations are [[Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Test|N.E.W.T.]]-level and are taught to [[Sixth year]]s and above at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]], such as ''[[Aguamenti Charm|Aguamenti]]''. According to [[Gamp's Law of Elemental Transfiguration|Gamp's Law of Elemental Transfiguration]], food cannot be conjured.

"Quirrell snapped his fingers. Ropes sprang out of thin air and wrapped themselves tightly around Harry"
Quirinus Quirrell conjures ropes[src]

Conjuration is a branch of Transfiguration. Conjurations are distinguished from the other branches of Transfiguration by their ability to transfigure the desired object from 'thin air'.

NatureEdit

" [...] these are easier than Conjuring Spells, which you would not usually attempt until N.E.W.T level"
Professor McGonagall to her fifth year class[src]

Since Conjuration is an advanced form of Transfiguration most are N.E.W.T.-level and are taught to sixth years and above at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,[1] although some conjurations are simpler and are taught to younger students. Some conjurations taught are the Water-Making Spell (Aguamenti) and the Bird-Conjuring Charm (Avis). There are limits as to what can be conjured, however; according to Gamp's Law of Elemental Transfiguration, food cannot be conjured.

Known instances of ConjurationEdit

  • In the Tales of Beedle the Bard, the three brothers conjured a bridge to get across a river.
  • Appleby Arrows supporters used to fire arrows onto the Quidditch pitch to support their team by use of the Arrow-shooting spell, however, the spell was banned in 1894 when referee Nugent Potts was pierced through the nose with a stray arrow.
  • Some time during his time at Hogwarts, Rubeus Hagrid was the victim of a Sardine Hex.
