label $150 or 4 payments of $37.50


Mala bead necklaces have traditionally been used in meditation and prayer in many Asian cultures. However, many wear them for purposes such as healing parts of the body, mind, spirit, or simply because they are drawn to the beautiful coloured beads. Making your own gemstone mala is a beautiful process through which you can incorporate blessings and intentions into your necklace. In this workshop, you will be guided through the process of creating your own mala. All materials required to make your Mala are included. Only genuine semi-precious gemstones and precious metals are used to create your special mala.

This is an excellent opportunity to create your own personalized spiritual meditation mala. Journey as a beginner into the sacred world of malas, as we find your personal vibrational gemstones, paired with powerful intentions can be used as a transformational tool to manifesting and fulfilling your soul purpose and can assist you in finding a deeper meditation practice.
 
The Basic Mala is the one that will be made during the course of the workshop. It consists of 108 gemstone beads, silk tassel and string and a silver guru bead.

* Masterful Makers - Luxury DIY Workshops *

The Art of being a maker!
Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire.
It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be learned!

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as 2 hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery, luxurious leather bag, stunning knotted mala or your own personalized luxury skincare products. All designed and crafted by you!

Let me introduce myself, I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer & maker of crafts. I am the owner of Masterful Makers and offer boutique workshops from my studio.

My love for art, the history of man and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context and heavy with human drama. They were an artefact, an antique and pretty. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire I began to make my first wrapped earrings. It was very therapeutic and relaxing, until my husband (at the time) saw the box of earrings I had made and took them to work. He returned that afternoon and presented me with a box of money, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began.

That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now!

I have my BA in art history and a Diploma in Visual Arts and Silversmithing.

I use my workshops to pass on my skills and knowledge so that you too will see just how enjoyable being a Maker can be. Coming away with personally designed and created pieces!

I am Victoria White and Making is my passion, let me make it yours as well!

Come and experience a Masterful Makers Workshop!

The teacher was very lovely and patient, she offered a warm and comfortable environment. I am happy with how my mala turned out.

I gather she was not as well-prepared for this class, as I did not receive the workbook.
And just now after looking at other feedback with photos of their malas, it appears some extras others had on their malas were not available to me.
My session only went for 2 hours, perhaps because I was the only one in the class, but for quite an expensive class of $150 I didn't feel I quite got my money's worth.

This was just my experience.

Victoria has many creative talents which she fortunately shares with her students, her amazing designer Malas are on display for inspiration.

The class was small just the 3 of us which allowed for sufficient one on one tuition when needed.

For the Mala making class Victoria welcomed us with herbal teas and presented an excellent selection of colourful beads, threads, tassels and accent silver pieces.

We all left the class with our own unique personal completed Mala - which was fantastic and I now look forward to making more as gifts. I would definitely do the class again or Victoria’s advanced knotted beading class.

Victoria and her assistant were fantastic with our boys (ages 9,11yrs) she had them completely engaged the whole time with detailed information and activities. They loved cracking the geode rocks and they loved making the silver necklaces and learning about different types of rocks and how they are formed. We hope to have Victoria back again.

My teacher Victoria was super cool and experienced. She had all the beads and a great range to choose from. I had so much fun learning how to make my own Mala beads. She even spend extra time to teach me how to make beaded bracelet . So definitely worth the money. I am going back to learn more.

Victoria is a wonderful teacher. She has some beautiful pieces and very experienced. It was nice to learn how to put together a Mala with her.

I enjoyed using the Chakra cards to help me determine which crystals I could use, and as you can see from the pic, you have no idea what the finished product will look like once you start working with different crystals which makes it more fun.

Victoria was an energetic and enthusiastic teacher that went to great lengths to make me feel comfortable in the jewellery making course. She walked through each step of the process, communicating in an enthused manner the endless possibilities of creating my own unique mala. She went to great lengths to ensure that my piece was exactly as I wanted it, and showed great dedication by helping in areas where I was finding the process a little tricky. The venue was lovely, and the class was well organised. I parked nearby (lucky I got a limitless parking spot), but for future customers, it may be better to catch public transport.
