Are you ready to smith and sip?

Learn the art of jewellery making at our lovely lakeside smithy while enjoying a tasty grazing platter and refreshments of tea, soft drink or wine.

About Mala:

A Mala is a string of beads traditionally used for prayer and meditation in numerous cultures. There are several sacred numbers that are used in Mala, each multiples of 9. A necklace typically has 108 beads, a holy number representing the mortal desires one must overcome to reach nirvana, and a central 'Guru bead', which is used to set one's intentions during meditation. A Mala bracelet typically has 27 beads.

Skills covered in this workshop:  

  • Selecting beads that resonate with you, be it for your meditation practice, for their energetic properties or simply for their beauty.
  • Threading and knotting
  • Attaching finals with shellac 
  • Creating tassels
  • Hand making a sterling silver clasp

This workshop runs for approximately 4 hours and is suitable for people with good dexterity and some creative experience. Strand knotting can be a tricky skill to master so this workshop requires a bit of patience.

NB. This workshop has a maximum capacity of 12 people and will only proceed with a minimum of 4 participants. Please be aware that if not enough tickets are sold by the day before the workshop date I will need to reschedule your attendance.

Each Shanyn Linklater Jewellery piece is hand made to order in our Lakes Entrance smithy. As such, slight variances from product photographs may occur. We think it’s this uniqueness that makes our jewellery so special.

Manufacturing time is usually less than two weeks but may be longer during busy times.

If you would like your piece by a certain date, like a special occasion, let us know via the contact page and we will do our best to get your piece out to you in time.
