In this drop in class you will learn to craft an Ojo de Dios (eye of god), woven with yarn between wooden sticks in several colors. The weaving of an Ojo de Dios mandala is an ancient contemplative and spiritual practice for many indigenous peoples in the Americas.
The process of making one, is repetitive, grounding and meditative, an excellent tool to quiet your mind and re-connect with yourself.
We will embellish them with tassels and pom poms, ready to hang in your home or gift to a loved one.
You will be given everything you need to make an Ojo, the class is free with a suggested donation of £2.
