I highly recommend Kathryn's mandala class! I spent a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon learning how to create a mandala and ended up with a beautiful design at the end of class.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thanks Sharmell. It was great to meet you and I'm so pleased you enjoyed my class. I hope you'll join me for another sometime!
Really enjoyed this course. Kathryn was an excellent teacher and the mandala drawing was really absorbing
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Sarah. I'm so pleased you both enjoyed it. It was a fun afternoon.
I really enjoyed this course. It can be difficult to learn creative things over Zoom, but Kathryn had thought it through and explained it very clearly, with slides showing step by step how to design a mandala. It was really inspiring and made me want to explore the subject further. The timing was good and Kathryn's friendly and easy-going approach was brilliant.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Caryl. That's very kind of you. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it and found it inspiring. That means so much!
I absolutely loved this course. The time flew by! Kathyrn was a fantastic and thorough teacher. I hope to join the follow on class soon to learn how to colour my mandalas. Great that you can do it from the comfort of your own home too. I highly recommend this course.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Ellie. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it. The time really did whizz by! Looking forward to you joining me for another class. See you soon!
Kathryn was lovely so welcoming. Instructions were clear and we worked at our own pace. I would highly recommend this course to anyone. I now have a lovely example of mandala. Will be taking the next level.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Stephanie. That's great to hear. Looking forward ot our next class together.
A thoroughly enjoyable online lesson with Kathryn (during the gloom of lockdown). The step by step instruction was clear and there was no pressure to finish the mandala in a hurry. My first attempt at this skill was not bad at all and it was a joy. I will enjoy finishing the mandala and adding colour tomorrow but I learnt a great deal in 90 minutes. Highly recommended.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Caroline. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it. It was lovely to meet you. Such an interesting chat too. I'm really looking forward to seeing your completed work.
I really enjoyed learning how to draw a mandala with Kathryn. She really put me at ease with no pressure to rush my drawing. It was very relaxing and rewarding to see how much I could achieve in 90 minutes.
I also enjoyed learning about the history of mandala and the use of them in psychology. Thoroughly enjoyed and recommend this course! Brilliant ... thank you so much Kathryn for sharing your expert knowledge.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Tracy. It was my pleasure. I hope you'll join one of my more advanced classes once you feel ready and in the meantime there's the informal catchup for my Facebook group. I'll let you know the date soon.
I found this course on the last minute and booked immediately - Kathryn got straight back to me to confirm a time and communication with her was excellent . The class was so relaxing , the techniques were really well demonstrated and explained and I amazed myself at being able to produce a Mandala at the end . Thank you Kathryn for a lovely tutorial
Response from Mandala Meadow:My pleasure, Jo. It was a lovely morning. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it too.
fabulous course, Kathryn paces it well, explains it well and quickly put me at ease. I'm not artistic but I was really pleased with the item I made on this course - definitely given me confidence to try more and what a lovely way to spend 90 mins the time flew past.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Irene. It was a lovely morning. I'd love to see what you draw next!
This was my first attempt at drawing a mandala and with Kathryn's patience, skills and excellent resources I managed to produce something I was very proud of! This really is one of the nicest courses I've ever done and being on Zoom wasn't an issue at all. If you've looked at mandalas and thought "I wish I could do that" then sign up for a lesson with Kathryn and let her show you how it's done...
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Joan! That's so kind of you. It's wonderful to know you enjoyed it so much. And thank you for joining my Facebook group. It's a great way to keep in touch and share our artwork.
I did the class with my daughters aged 14 and 12 and we all loved it. It was peaceful and relaxing and Kathryn was a great teacher with plenty of patience! It really felt as though we were all in the same room despite the screen. We all ended up up creating mandalas that we were delighted with and had a really enjoyable afternoon.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you Philipa! I'm so pleased you all enjoyed it. I hope you'll continue to create many more beautiful and unique mandalas from the ideas I've given and I'm sure you'll add many more of your own. Do keep in touch.
Kathryn was wonderful. I felt at ease and wasn't rushed to complete my mandala drawing. Kathryn explained the history and methods behind the drawings. At the end of the lesson I was so pleased with what I had achieved and the knowledge learnt. Advice on design, development, different textures were all helpful. I would definitely recommend this course.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you so much, Maria. It was a lovely evening. So pleased you enjoyed it too! best wishes, Kathryn
