Mala Of the Month ~Winter Moon Goddess!
Gemini Moon Designs
$60 + Gst
Overview - 3 Hour Workshop: Our Mala of the Month is an introduction class to Mala making. It is offered each month with a specifically designed bead kit to create the Mala shown in the picture. Each month will focus on a different grouping of stones and their meanings, with emphasis on learning different techniques for the focal bead, ie creating your own tassel, various ways to suspend different styles of beads.
If you are looking to make a different design you are welcome to use your own choice of beads whether you bring them in or pick them up in store. Our experienced instructor, Brooke will guide students through the process of creating a nice taught and even strand of stone beads while learning how to use mantras to imbue specific feelings and energies into the Mala.
Objectives: This workshop focuses on the proper stringing techniques used for knotting in between beads, how to highlight a stunning focal bead or how to create your very own tassels.
Learn why 108 beads are the optimal number for a mala as well as how to finish it off neatly so there is a flow to your beads. While working on your Mala, our instructor will explain colour work and how certain colours work together as well as going over the specific metaphysical properties of the stones being used in that month’s Mala design.
There is a $50 kit fee for the bead kit each month.
It will include all the beads, silk cord and a selection of focal beads to choose from that will be needed for the mala displayed in the picture above. All tools will be provided for student use during the workshop.
Please bring a notebook.
