Mala Necklace Making: Mala 101 Workshop

Wednesday, August 29, 2018, 7:00 PM

Learn about and create a customized mala necklace! We will discuss gemstone meaning, take a look at the anatomy of a mala, and, if desired, set intentions for the pieces we will create. Usually, malas are created with a purpose and intention behind them. Every aspect of the mala has a specific meaning. Traditionally, malas are used as a tool to help keep our mind focused during the practice of meditation. In this workshop, the intention is up to you! You can choose to prayerfully make your necklace silently, repeating a mantra as you bless your necklace, or simply come to have fun and create a stunning piece to wear as a fashion accessory. Come create with us! Malas can be made of many materials. The beads in this workshop are natural gemstones from places all over the world – we use authentic Rudraksha seeds, natural gemstones, bone, wood, various metals and even pearls! You'll be choosing your gemstone beads and your tassel color when you arrive. so come early to get first pick. There will be plenty of options. Students will learn skills and traditions related to making a traditional mala necklace, including: Best use of relevant tools Overhand bead knotting Securing closures and tassels Use of spacer beads and bead covers Balance and layout of your piece Traditions and tips for making your own tassel Materials: All tools and supplies will be provided. No experience necessary.  This will be a 4 hour workshop to allow ample time for us to have a short water/snack break. Light snacks provided. We will begin and end the class in the same way and both are an important part of this workshop. Please arrive on time and plan to stay for the closing. If you must leave early, please let the instructor know in advance and take a short minute to bless your mala necklace on your own before you go.
