Inspired by prayer beads, mandalas and prayer drawing, prayer weaving will bring intention to your weaving practice. Learn to warp an embroidery hoop for circular weaving and how to chant inwardly or outwardly your prayer as you complete each pass. Whether you choose to pray for yourself, for a loved one, for your community, or the Earth… prayer weaving is a beautiful way of sustaining your prayer. Prayer weavings hold your prayers in a visual and tactile structure that will always remind you of your intention. The finished piece is a window for your blessings. No experience necessary. All supplies provided, although you are welcome to bring special yarns or ribbons or small strings of beads, if you choose.
