Make Your Own Custom Mala Necklace
May 20 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
About this event
Join Liz Layne Yoga + Megan of Mala Magick for a Custom 108 Bead Mala-Making class at Color Up CBD’s event space!
In this workshop you will learn about:
- History and traditions of mala-making
- Caring for your mala
- How to use your mala in japa meditation
And most importantly – you will make your own custom mala necklace! After registering for this class, Liz and Megan will work with you to help you choose the perfect color(s) and stone type(s) for your necklace.
As space is limited in this venue, and we will need a few days’ notice to source your custom beads, early registration is encouraged!
All materials are provided for you to make your very own mala necklace and take it home.
Your investment of $75 includes light refreshments and all materials to make your mala necklace. If you’d like to bring a snack or drink to share with the group, please do!
We will meet at 5:30pm on Friday May 20th for a short introduction and then create our malas. We have 3.5 hours reserved for this workshop to allow ample time, but you are welcome to leave when your mala is complete.

Here’s what people are saying about this class:
“What a fantastic class. I knew very little about mala before class, and I walked away not just with a beautiful, high-quality necklace that I was proud of, but also with knowledge of the history, the significance of the beads, and how to use my mala. Often times I get anxious in group classes, trying to complete things in a hurry, but the teachers are patient and passionate and it was easy to feel relaxed, their energy was great and infectious. I went with two friends and we all just had the best time. Thank you, Liz and Megan!” – Sarah
“The instructors were incredibly patient untying all my messed up knots. The selection of beads was lovely, and the information on the history and use of malas was thorough. I’m very pleased with the mala I created, and use it daily. Highly recommend this class.” – Kate
“Liz and Megan are wonderfully patient teachers. They provided the tools and supplies needed to create beautiful Malas. This class is truly a focused and calming experience. We learned about the history and significance of our bead choice and tying of the string with intention. It was a fantastic class and a wonderful experience.” – Dennis
