Stone Mandalas Walk-In Craft
Mandalas are created with geometric shapes and curvilinear lines, and often incorporate ancient spiritual symbols that are significant in Hinduism and Buddhism. Stop by The Workspace to make a painted stone mandala, and keep it as a talisman for yourself, or give it to someone as a small but special gift. $2 per stone
This workshop is held in conjunction with visiting Tibetan Monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery who will be creating a large mandala sand painting September 24-28 at the MU. The dul-tson-kyil-khor (sand mandala) will be made over a four day period using millions of grains of carefully-placed sand. Once complete, the mandala is deconstructed - a metaphor of the impermanence of life. A schedule the opening and closing ceremonies, open viewing times, and the Symbolism of the Sand Mandala lecture can be found HERE, and are sponsored by Student Union Board.
Drop in during open hours but give yourself an hour.
Monday-Friday from 2-10pm
