Ojo de Dios
These are not the simple God’s Eye weavings from summer camp! “Ojo de Dios”, or yarn mandalas, are enjoying an artistic resurgence. Originally a Mexican folk art, these weavings were used as protective talismans. Today, they are an exciting expression of color and form, and the creative possibilities of this craft are endless. In this class you will learn the essential skills of this art form: from stick preparation and spoke joining to shape layering and finishing. All the materials are included for you to make your own 16 inch, 8 spoke mandala, and you will leave with the skills to further explore 12 spoke and other structured designs. Be prepared to experiment with bold color choices and to have fun! All materials included in tuition.
