Create your own Prayer Beads with Kate
$45 per class

This is a repeat of a beautiful workshop!  Please join me. 


Prayer beads are a personal way to connect to your quiet center, to be reminded of what is important to you and what energies you want to send out to those arou...nd you and to the universe and wider even.
they are non denominational, used widely in nearly every faith system.
I have a string of stones to represent my family. when I travel, it comes with me, and is set in a special place in my hotel room, so that I can remember who it is that I love and who loves and supports me.
  I am hosting a class so that you can create your own string of prayer beads. we will figure out together, what energies and prayers you want in your beads and then build it. you will create a prayer mala about 8" long. stones and beads for your creation can be chosen because of color, or stone energy or any association that makes you feel something that you want to include.

it will be a really lovely workshop. make them for yourself, or for a gift.
there are three distinct times to choose from to fit into your schedule. friday night/saturday morning/sunday afternoon. the workshop is limited to 8 people each, you can reserve your spot for this peace-filled and mindful project by purchasing it from our online boutique, or coming into Kamala Boutique.
all materials are included, with the invitation to bring special small items you wish to incorporate: a meaningful bead, or charm or button, etc. sometimes we keep such things in our jewelry boxes, and this is a perfect way to honor them.
no experience in jewelry making necessary. I will help you with whatever you need to do to complete it.

ZENTANGLE SERIES

Come and deepen your Zentangle practice with CZT Sarah Del Mastro on Wednesday mornings.
Sarah is well known for her gentle way of teaching, she is very connected to the zen of the putting your pen to paper and creating beautiful works.



Continuing the jouney with our second of our Wednesday morning Zentangle classes at Kamala's new studio. This series of classes is great for beginners, but is also for experienced tanglers who wish to reconnect with the foundations of the method. In this second class we will delve into strings in more depth, considering the characteristics of a string, different types of string and different ways to use them, not just to contain tangles but to support and guide and grow tangles. Get comfortable creating your own creative strings and of course we will get to know some more tangles and start looking at how to blend and mix them together effortlessly! Later classes in this series will take time to go into more depth to develop students confidence on themes such as shading, creating tangleations and new tangles, and how to work elegantly with 'unplanned' lines! We will also explore 'Fragments and Reticula' in Zentangle, a new concept introduced earlier this year by Rick and Maria, the founders of Zentangle Method. $30 per class or $100 for a four class pass (Series dates: Sept 14, 28, Oct 12, 26), 9-11am. (Note: If you dont attend all four classes you can use your class pass towards another class with me at Kamala)
One class has already happened, contact Sarah if you are interested in attending the rest of them.

November 8th - Beautiful Bijou (Grid tangles, beginners welcome)

'Bijou' is a french word which means 'little jewel'. This class introduces Zentangle's beautiful 'Bijou' tiles. Smaller than the traditional Zentangle tiles, Bijou tiles make great miniature masterpieces which can be enjoyed individually or combined in lots of fun ways. They also make great gift tags. In this class we will use these delightful tiles to explore a variety of grid based tangles and 3D grid effects.
