Namka Workshop

Namka Workshop -This workshop presents the simple, symbolic mechanics of Namka or Sky Weaving. While not well known in the west, Namka is one of a number of practices which pre-date the arrival of Buddhism in Tibet, later becoming absorbed into Buddhist tradition. Namkha weaving consists of individual thread-crosses using two or more sticks and threads of coloured wool or silk. The colours of the namka are symbolic of the elements (blue, green, red, white, and yellow for space, air, fire, water, and earth respectively).
