For centuries mandalas have been used in healing, meditation, reflection, relaxation, balance, reconnection, and mindfulness. Creative meditation practices like drawing mandalas centre and calm the mind, uplift the spirit and embody your intentions and desires.
In this fun workshop participants will be led through a process of mindfulness and creative expression to produce their own unique mandala. It’s a time to relax and reflect outside of your normal day to day reality, connect with others, and also get creative with guided instruction to create your own beautiful mandala artwork, illustrated on a beautiful watercolour background, in one of three different styles: geometric, organic/nature inspired and small repeated shapes.
Suitable for all, no previous painting/drawing experience required.
I enjoyed the class for the social aspect, meeting Jo and simply taking time out to be creative. Although I was expecting to hear about 'mindful' illustration and what that means for creating mandalas. This was really how it was pitched in the description of the event, but was not the case. I know the process for creating mandalas and painting in watercolour so I was really looking forward to taking it to a deeper level. Maybe something to consider for future classes.
What a fantastic workshop! I'm so excited to be able to make my own mandalas at home. What looks complicated and daunting was made simple and fun with Jo's instructions. She's a great teacher and it was so nice to make art with a bunch of other people. Highly recommend!
