Mandala Creation Drawing Workshop in the Peak District



Learn all the skills and techniques you will need to produce your own beautiful mandala. Understanding the mandala comes through creating one. You may think, “I can’t draw” and you may wonder “Can I do this?” but this is where the magic begins. You can release any anxiety around creating a finished artwork and relax into the process of repeated small actions. Through this focus on process, we are continually surprised how the mandala emerges. Each mandala has its own design and energy. Having been introduced to simple mark-making, shapes and patterns you will be amazed at how the mandala evolves and draws you in. This is mindfulness in action. A meditation. Likewise, you may think, “I can’t meditate”, but I find workshop participants enter a meditative state, effortlessly. The process takes you there. Participants talk about being so engrossed they don’t want to stop. But don’t worry - you will leave with all the skills you need to continue confidently at home. This is the ultimate doodle!! Once you set out upon the path of mandala creation, you will find that your practice becomes dynamic, engrossing and will develop over time. Some students now use it as a tool for managing their mental health.

My name is Tamsin Cunningham and I graduated in 2002 in the visual arts, and specialised in bespoke contemporary textile art. After 15 years of exhibitions, private commissions and various teaching roles, I was ready to change direction with my work. Having spent some time travelling in India and Indonesia and I became deeply interested in mandalas. I learnt that the repetition, patterns, colours and the geometry were all aspects of mandalas which helped to take the spectator into a meditative space. But, the true power, I discovered, was in the process of creating them. This is where the gift is – the connection with the soul. Through these experiences I started to create mandalas, incorporating sacred geometry and architecture into my new work. I now feel compelled to pass on this practice to other people through creative mandala workshops. What surprises me is that anybody can do it! Even if you think you can’t draw or dot! And it will take you into a meditative place without even trying! Pure magic! All my works are hand drawn and hand painted. They are created using pencil, inks and acrylics.
