What is a DLP ?
Dali Lamas Pajamas is an art/garment project that I started in 2015. Inspired by shamanism, it is a loose-fitting , easy to wear garment. A cocoon that sits comfortably, when one intends to enter into a state of rest or perform a ritual.
The garment evolved with a blessing and a ritual.
What will we do in the work/play date?
You will make your own personal DLP, Shamans Shawl.
We will also talk about shamanism, meditation, blessings, and ritual.
We will look at and try on different existing DLPs. We will choose/make /combine a fabric best suited towards crafting your own DLP. We will cut the pattern and we will sew it up.
What do you need?
4 meters of woven fabric. A mixture of fabrics is possible but not more than 4 different kinds are advised. A recycled textile can be worked into your Shamans shawl. Please bring it with you and if need be, a selection of textiles can also be available to purchase.
