CONSTRUCTING AMULETS AS ADORNMENT
Using simple binding and knotless netting participants will construct Personal Amulets.
The body of the piece can be a small cloth pillow, layered cardboard/paper or folded metal mesh, or any other material. Precious objects or written words can be placed within. Participants will embellish the outer surface with more words, beads, ribbon, thread, or bits of cloth. Stitching, hot glue or cloth glue can be used. Binding will be incorporated for neck attachment or tassels.
Knotless netting will be the top layer/veiling to create additional "shrouding" to each sacred amulet. These amulets can be worn, carried or placed in a special place. Give some thought to feelings to focus on and then place within your special piece. All materials will be supplied except for personal special stones, beads, buttons and written statements that participants wish to include.
