You only need to bring in objects for casting. Sarah O’Sullivan recommends you bring in two or three objects from which you will choose one to cast. The object should be something that you would like to cast, any object might be suitable, but Sarah will advise you on the day. They should not be bigger than 20 x 20 x 20 cm.
