Mandalas have an inherit meditative aspect to both the viewer and the maker.
As part of this workshop I will introduce meditation techniques to help you create your artwork and explore with you the sacred geometry of Mandalas.
I will take you on a guided meditation, in which you will then create your own mandala.
The workshop will teach you how to use a hammer and hardie, how to cut marble from rods, and of course you will then translate your mandala artwork from marble.
Marble and mandalas create a beautiful combination as the marble colours are all earthy tones.
