About the Deck
Seeking a way to balance the hyper-masculine energy in our culture with a soft, strong and feminine deck, Theresa’s tarot deck, White Sage Tarot was born. The white sage plant is used in smudging; an ancient Native American method used to cleanse spaces and people.

White Sage Tarot is modern minimalist 78 card deck based in a classical model of tarot. The animals wear clothing and crowns, creating a whimsical touch to both the Court Cards and the Major Arcana. The deck is infused with 7 Chakra (energy centers) colored ribbons as an additional way to read the deck. The intention of The White Sage Tarot is to help people find clarity and flow while navigating life’s journey.

About Theresa
Theresa Hutch lives and works out of her home studio in Minneapolis, MN. She is an illustrator and small business owner of an on-line stationery shop called Small Cloud Shop. She sells wholesale to 21 stores both local and global. Theresa has a B.A. in Design Communications and is licensed to teach art and yoga. She enjoys developing characters, and telling astory with her art. In addition to illustration, Theresa loves to travel, teach yoga and spend time with her family.

About Vastu Shastra
Vastu Shastra is the parent of Feng Shui. It originates in India, and is a sister science of Ayurveda and Yoga. Vastu is the Vedic science associated with creating harmony and balance in dwellings. When our homes and dwellings are aligned with nature, it invites greater health, happiness, and prosperity into our lives. We will discuss how to balance your home and work environments, using the principles of Vastu Shastra, so that energy flows more harmoniously in a living space.

About Lalitha
Lalitha Belur is fascinated with the Vedic sciences (Yoga, Ayurveda, Vastu Shastra) and their beneficial effects on health, well being and happiness. She is a Vastu Shastra consultant, and is passionate about helping others create better energy flow in their homes and work spaces. She loves to create altars for people, tailoring the altar to meet each individual’s needs and intentions. Lalitha is a scientist by profession, and specializes in genetic therapy and innovative delivery therapies for brain and liver diseases, with the goal of transforming lives of patients with unmet medical needs.

Artist Trunk Show: Goldfinch Blankets

Shop luxurious blankets, scarves, towels, napkins, and other accessories from Goldfinch Blankets by local designers Caroline Vaaler and Debra Herdman. 

The Goldfinch egg was formed in 2013 when Caroline and Debra – friends who share a fascination and passion for textiles, old world craft and modern technology – believed they could hatch something useful and beautiful by combining all three.

With unique talents and vision under their wings, they went to find artisans in Nepal and Mexico, where making things by hand is still a way of life. Caroline and Debra design their collection in Minneapolis, but it is brought to life by the fine craftspeople they’ve found in these fascinating, far-away places.

Tea and Textiles: Japanese Folk Textiles with Mary Pawlcyn of Indigo

Tea and Textiles: Japanese Folk Textiles with Mary Pawlcyn of Indigo

Join us for our next Tea and Textiles with Mary Pawlcyn of Indigo Thursday, April 20th, 2017 at 7 pm. We will be exploring the world of Japanese Folk Textiles. 

These traditional ‘country’ textiles of late 19th and early 20th century Japan are often overshadowed by exhibitions of the more widely admired silk kimono and theatre costumes of the urban environment.

Beautiful in their own right, and often just as technically complex, they present a fascinating picture of everyday, rural life in Mingei, Japan. 

Mary Pawlcyn has over 40 years of experience with textiles, starting with her degree in Textile Design from RISD in 1971 and moving through a year of intensive weaving, vegetable dying and spinning in England and Wales, constructing costumes and hats at the Guthrie, and running a weaving and teaching studio in Minneapolis. Since 1979 she and her husband and partner, John Byrnes have run Indigo, a store selling traditional Asian and Tribal arts, textiles, antiques, folk arts and furniture.

Space is limited, RSVP to khazana@khazana.com

This is a free event. Tea and cookies will be provided!

Tea and Textiles: Varanasi Brocade with Woolgathering Company

Tea and Textiles: Varanasi Brocade with Woolgathering Company

Shweta Kasana of Woolgathering Company will be presenting Khazana's first Tea and Textiles of 2017.

Longtime friends Shweta and Sam founded Woolgathering Company in order to sustain their dream of a slow, deliberate lifestyle. They wanted to wonder as much as possible, and to support other wool gatherers like themselves. Thus, textile artists, natural dreamers, formed the second half of Shweta and Sam's alliance.

At Tea and Textiles, Shweta will discuss her favorite style of textile, hand loomed brocade, which originates in Varanasi. True brocade, the opulent "embroidery of the loom," is sadly becoming increasingly rare. This is because textile companies have begun creating brocade en masse on mechanized looms. This outsourcing of labor incentivizes artists to move away from their villages, and into cities, where they are underpaid, and lonely without their families and traditional culture.

Woolgathering Company's aim is to insure that people of all economic backgrounds can afford artisanal goods, so that village artists no longer have to work for unethical textile factories. By working directly with artisans, contributing to their educations, and assisting them in sourcing materials, Shweta helps to lower the costs of production. Indeed, Woolgathering Company encourages master artisans adapt their traditional skills to a modern world.

Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse Altar Making Class

Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse Altar Making Class

Since time immemorial, altars have been a way to invite the sacred into our lives. Altars are designed as sacred spaces, where you can ask for grace to infuse your life, and for your intentions to manifest. Altars can contain items from any religious or spiritual practice, and will beautify your surroundings, while at the same time enable you to transform your lives.

The full moon is very significant in many ancient cultures. It holds the promise of fruition and fulfillment. Whatever good intention is initiated as the moon grows into fullness, has the potential to provide beneficial results. In this workshop, on the evening preceding the full moon in August, we will use the five elements to create full moon altars, based on the principles of Vastu Shasta. Once created, we will activate our altars, release our request into the Universe, with the intention of bringing forth positive and life enhancing change into our lives.

Lalitha Belur is fascinated with the Vedic sciences (Yoga, Ayurveda, Vastu Shastra) and their beneficial effects on health, well being and happiness. She is a Vastu Shastra consultant, and is passionate about helping others create better energy flow in their homes and work spaces. She loves to create altars for people, tailoring the altar to meet each individual’s needs and intentions.

Lalitha is a scientist by profession, and specializes in genetic therapy and innovative delivery therapies for brain and liver diseases, with the goal of transforming lives of patients with unmet medical needs. She works at the University of Minnesota.

"The Shipibo designs are a representation of the Cosmic Serpent, the Anaconda, the great Mother, creator of the universe called Ronin Kene. For the Shipibo the skin of Ronin Kene has a radiating, electrifying vibration of light, colour, sound, movement and is the embodiment of all possible patterns and designs past, present, and future."
