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 N.E.W.T.-level and are taught to Sixth years and above at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, such as Aguamenti. According to Gamp's Law of Elemental Transfiguration, food cannot be conjured.

Known instances of Conjuration

  • 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.
