No previous experience required. During this session we will:
Learn more about mindfulness, and share information and weblinks for further reading.
Talk about the inner peace and calm brought about by the mindful practice of creativity.
Learn about the history and significance of mandalas, their use in meditation and the use of colours (including the significance of colours – in different cultures as well as for Chakras).
Introduction to the specialist dotting tools, practice using them on scrap paper to gain confidence in the materials then create 2 greeting cards (using pre-printed grids), and select colours that have meaning for you.
During this session we will also explore other forms of creativity that we can employ at home to create more ‘me time’ and provide time for being mindful.

    I attended a beginners dot mandalas class today with my friend Rayne and absolutely loved it. Karen is the most beautiful person you could meet, she is friendly, warm, welcoming and knows her stuff. Karen made the class enjoyable and it was great fun to relax and be mindful whilst doing the mandalas. I would highly recommend Karen and her classes so much so I’m going to do loads more.
    You won’t regret meeting this beautiful lady and doing one of her wonderful classes. 5* and you get hugs so what more could you want x
    Thank you so much Karen ???? love and light ☀️ being sent to you

    Had a fantastic time at Karens ‘Dot Mandala Taster’ Workshop, held at the fabulous Court Street Gallery this morning. I am not an arty person, but managed to create two lovely cards and learn a new skill, which I will be definitely be continuing at home. Karen also taught us how this kind of art can help with mindfulness and relaxation, which was really interesting. A really enjoyable morning and have already booked the Advanced course. Highly recommend ????

  4. Frances Simmons

    My friend & I spent an enjoyable few hours yesterday at the Court Street Gallery at Karen’s part 1 & 2 Dot Mandala course. I can highly recommend it – we’ve already booked for the advanced course in the autumn. Thank you Karen for guiding us through the dots and dabs and we came away feeling very relaxed and happy. ????

  5. Emma Cooper

    Spent a lovely 1.5hours completing the introduction to Dot Mandala. Karen’s workshop was great! Perfect balance of learning the background of the art and an opportunity to have a go and create something very pretty. Perfectly pitched for a beginner and allows you to gain confidence and want to try the next workshop. Would recommend this if you are need of a “time out” of the everyday stresses. Thank you

  6. Tina Mortimer

    Wonderful, relaxing few hours. Dot Mandala’s definitley engage your brain in a way other things do not. Karen is an excellent, patient teacher

  7. Ruth Patrak

    Thanks for your workshop. You are a talented and patient teacher!The experience was calming and as described quite mindful. The prints created I have used as cards to send to friends. I would recommend your classes to all as a way to create and reflect.

  8. Jane Symonds

    I recently attended the Beginners Dot Mandala Workshop.  Karen spoke of mindfulness & shared interesting information. It was both relaxing and enjoyable.

    Karen explained & demonstrated the art of dotting, we then went on to dot our own mandala cards. It was one of the best workshops that I’ve attended, really enjoyed it & have booked myself on the advanced course in June. Cant wait.

    Had a great time at Karen’s dot mandala and mindfulness class at Paper and Smiles. Karen is an excellent teacher and explained everything really well, she started with some mindful awareness which was very interesting and useful. I made two lovely dot mandala cards which I am very pleased with. Thoroughly recommend this course as anyone can do it, it is much easier than it looks and with Karen’s support you will be pleased with your results

  10. Sue Hartley

    We are an Art and Craft Wellbeing group based in Wellow (just outside Bath), about 15 of us attended Karen’s workshop re Mandela Workshop on 25th February 2020. We very much enjoyed making the 2 Mandela cards each and will be booking a further workshop later in the year re block printing.

    Karen was very attentive and answered all our questions and it was great that afterwards we could buy supplies direct from her to continue our wellbeing. I would fully recommend attending any of these workshops

  11. Lisa Coles

    Thank you for showing our well women group the art and techniques of Dots & Blocks.

    This was very relaxing and an enjoyable session to experience. Quite a few of us are still creating more very decorative cards when we meet each week.

    It was lovely to meet you.

    I attended a beginners dot mandala workshop at the court street gallery. Karen was a very calm and patient teacher. This has now become a hobby of my mine and I would definitly recommend the class to others. I find this hobby very relaxing and meditative. Thank you Karen.
