Workshop will include:

  • A brief & broad description & history of mandalas and their variants from across a wide spectrum of cultures & traditions from Aztec to astrological and even Celtic consideration.
  • Learning about your colour & mark-making instincts.
  • Learning the mechanics of drawing mandalas from simple to complex.
