Silver Batiking & Healing Workshop - 10am - 1pm or 2 - 5pm - For groups of 4 or more
This workshop is a combination of fun and a little touch about intuition and the body's energy. We are the only studio on the island who does this work with jewellery and we have had wonderful results. Its a combination of learning about 'self', 'acceptance' and 'resonating' with gemstones and design. We aim to give groups a wonderful experience where they can share ideas and thoughts with each other, laugh and create pendants that they will remember for a lifetime. This workshop is from 10am - 1pm or 2 - 5pm any day.
On the day you will:
1 - Have a 15 minute Angel Card reading, where you take the pack of Angel Cards and give your energy to the deck. You will choose the word or card that your intuition suggests. From this reading you will then work through finding the words that are close to what you need to work on in your life. For some people the question really is if you really enjoy taking a big step forwards and make an important choice or change that you know empowers you. Once you begin to easily absorb this information, you will discover how naturally it balances you and how the insights gained open the doors to new unlimited choices. From this you will start to glean some words that will become 'power' words for you.
2 - Watch and learn and feel what crystals enhance health and well being. We concentrate also on the stones available from Indonesia as a group of islands, but we also look at the stones that heal the body. This is very much a feeling workshop. Your intuition plays centre stage in your choices.
3 - Start your words or phrases choices you wish to stamp on silver sheet. We supply your bases already done, but you have to use your intuition once again to choose the right shape for you. Let your fingers do the work and dip into the shapes bag to find which shape has chosen you. Now comes the fun bit. We want you to use a combination of silver resist (or batiking) to come up with a design for your base. We have plenty of samples, but why not consider shapes and textures from Indonesia and the island of Bali. We help you with our books and samples.
4 – Now it's time to choose a gemstone that relates to the place of healing within your own body. Hold and find the energy associated with your chosen stone and feel if it resonates within your body and be aware of where this energy is forming within. Choose by intuition once again and take the dip into the bag with your hand.
5 – Now we are ready to develop a personalised symbol that connects the gemstone and the words and cut, forge, hammer and file it. This can be anything from a spiral to a square, but you will make it in brass wire and then attach it to your piece. We offer you meaning for some of the examples we give of everyday life symbols.
6 - Add all three pieces together with jump rings and choose from a variety of waxed cotton cords for the necklace.5 grams of silver are included and gemstone chosen from our selection available for this class.
