SMALL MANDALA PAINTING ON WOOD

Colouring for adults is one of the latest trends. Colouring is good for us as it is a relaxing and focused activity that helps release stress and anxiety. It also offers the benefits of subtle colour therapy as we choose the colours we feel drawn to at that particular moment in time.

In this workshop, we offer you the opportunity to spend two relaxing hours in a friendly environment painting a mandala onto a small wooden plaque.

You will first get to choose a mandala design from a selection of templates, which you will then transfer onto the wooden plaque (10x10cm / 4x4in). You will have access to a wide variety of colours to paint your mandala and end up with a beautiful little piece of decoration to take home with you.

All materials and refreshments provided.

Cost: £15. Only 8 places available. Advance booking and full payment required by 25 May. You can pay using Paypal or bank transfer. Please specify ‘SMALL MANDALA’ when making your payment so that I know which workshop you are booking for.
