New Moon Mami Talisman Workshop

Let's hang out for Workshop Wednesday! Let's welcome the New Moon in good company with an awesome little project at hand. Let's make a Mami Talisman surrounded by the richly enchanting bounty of Eldorado General Store located in Historic and Up & Coming Corktown Detroit in this intimate one-night workshop.

Talismans are objects said to have magic powers and to bring good luck. I like to think of them as "guardians of the goodvibes" protectors of the home. Hang it up where you love to hang out. Soft glazed clay pieces, string, and knots are the simple materials and methods we'll use to create your own one of kind, ready to hang Mami Talisman! All materials will be provided and all skill levels are welcome for this meditative and challenging, but definately rewarding workshop.  

Seats are limited! Please call Erin or Ashley at 313-784-9220 for pricing and availability.
