ONE DAY WONDERS- MAGIC IN A DAY

More than 'just art' mandalas symbolically join pieces of 'our self ' together creating a pattern or design that brings harmony and a sense of wholeness. This simple process gives us a point of focus, reminding us that nothing is permanent, and connecting us to what is truly important. And, the process surprises because the art work unfolds, emerges, develops and evolves into something bigger than we thought we could do. It is expressing that which lies deep within and it is awesome!

Even if you believe that you do not have a creative bone in your body you can do this. I guarantee it.

VENUE:  Upwey, Victoria - further details on application.

It is my wish that Mandalas and creativity be a widely used tool that is respected and valued as a medium for self-expression, exploration and well being for individuals and communities.

SO I have designed this two day workshop sharing 20 years of personal working experience with mandala art, to train others to spread the magic.  

We give you the skills and knowledge to plan and present interactive and effective mandala art sessions. From analyzing client needs to structuring, delivering and designing engaging workshops, every step of the process is covered.

There is plenty of class time dedicated to skills practice where you will be ‘doing’ as well as listening, discussing and learning . You will actually experience what it is like to explore and express, interpret and discover what creative expression offers so that you can impart that to others. 

We cover your questions ....

  • How do I convert my passion into my business?

  • What is the business side of running art workshops such as insurance, bookings, fees?

  • Do I need a business plan and how do I make one?

  • How can I create my own course and vision with mandalas?

  • What are my creative and people skills and how do I share them?

  • Are there methods to facilitate and present a successful mandala workshop?

  • How can I identify and understand participants’ needs?

  • How do I create an active, engaging and fun learning environment ?

  • Do I have to be an artist to make mandalas?

  • How could I manage challenging participants and class situations?

And more ...

To support this course, I have written a very comprehensive large manual giving you a reference to material and content for running your own successful mandala art workshops.
