Talisman Workshop 28.12.2018
Who does not know them, the holiday memorabilia; A seashell from the beach, a special stone from the mountains or perhaps inherited gems. For all of us, these companions have a special value, the memory, as lucky charm or simply a beautiful object from which you do not want to part. Sometimes one doesn't know where to put them and they disappear into trouser pockets, flowerpots or drawers. Why not make a talisman out of it?
In our next workshop, we will show you how to make your own talisman - a combination of different knotting techniques, using fine yarns and exquisite ingredients. Either the entire talisman including a necklace of yarn is knotted or only as a pendant with a loop, which can be worn on a necklace alone or with other pendants (eg our plant-tanned leaf pendants). Finally we give the talisman a personal intension throught a small ritual, by which he will protect or support us in everyday life or in certain situations.
