Make your Mark: an introduction to Mandala design
Be intrigued by the repetitive minutiae of mark making that is at the core of mandala design. Be inspired by the meditative process that allows you to MAKE YOUR MARK, beginning from the centre and slowly working out to the edge, incorporating countless tiny marks that compose a mandala.
2 July – 4 July
16 July – 18 July
13 August – 15 August
You are invited to a facilitated opportunity to explore the possibilities of making YOUR MARK in a supportive environment. No skills required, just a willingness to play, allowing yourself to figure it out as you go. A time to explore new possibilities, little by little developing your ideas into a unique design.
Suitable for individuals who are curious to expand their creativity, to gain another perspective or just increase their awareness of themselves.
This is a hands-on course where you will create your design using ink on paper; where we will discuss different methods to colour and embellish your work using silver and gold leaf.
All materials will be supplied.
