Please see the photo gallery for an idea of what you could be creating with us….
Dot Mandalas Beginners Workshop – 2 hours @ £25 per person
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.
Dot Mandalas Advanced Workshop – 3 hours @ £40 per person
You must have completed our Beginners Workshop before moving onto our Advanced Workshop. During this session we will:
Refresh your dotting skills and introduce you to some larger dotting tools.
Create an 8″ square canvas artboard together as a group, following a pattern template. This piece will be created using three layers of dots, with two layers fully completed in the session.
Create a 5″ square canvas using a stencil. You will have a choice of several stencil designs, with finished pieces available for inspiration.
Be introduced to other mediums that you can use to create lines, swirls and patterns.
You will get to see finished samples up to 12″ square in size, for inspiration for what comes next.
PLEASE NOTE: We offer the opportunity for delegates to be able to continue their creativity at home. With the ability to buy workshop appropriate tools, paints and materials at favourable prices (we have a card reader too).
