Welcome Spring with a new Ancestral Beading practice
SPACE: CONFERENCE ROOM
WHEN: 2:30 - 5:00pm – 20 Sep 2020
We welcome spring with a workshop dedicated to sharing the Embera beading technique using looms and multicoloured miniature glass-beads. There has never been such a crucial time for us to stop, recalibrate and give time to ourselves and our creativity!
We like to hold a sacred place where our sessions feed you with unique cultural insights from millenary cultures from Latin America, combined with technical skills in beading. Our network of beaders is growing around the world as more people take up this unique style of beading and let their imagination run free! We specialise in rich cultural and educational material where we also provide our students with tools to build emotional resilience, connecting to the present and cherishing creativity.
Price includes materials such a personalised loom, 21 choices of colours, needles and thread. The class is accompanied by tools for mindfulness and awakening our creativity. (All materials are packed in individual zip lock bags and have been sterilised, we follow strict rules in compliance with 107 Project's instructions for social distancing and Covid-free care).
Our beading workshops are unique and important because:
- They are based on a grassroots partnership with local tribes in Latin America
- We are 100% vegan and do not use any animal based products
- Students learn about the importance of protecting traditional arts and culture
- A holistic approach to beading, using mindfulness and wholeheartedness
*Our classes use best quality of materials such as Traditional Czech Beads, waxed thread and professional beading needles.
Ana is also the founding director of Mami Watta Collections, a jewellery brand that provides employment to over 15 families of Indigenous artisans across Colombia. She has been taught the art of beading by the Embera tribe, who have welcomed her to their land and immersed her in rich culture and spiritual expansion. Ana runs workshops that merge beading with tools for mindfulness and emotional resilience.
