Absolutely excellent course. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you so much Kathryn for a totally immersive experience.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Hi Jackie and Julie. It was great to meet you both. I'm so pleased you enjoyed this morning, as did I. It would be wonderful to see you again sometime.
Just happened to see the Mandala Drawing for Beginners class mentioned on Facebook, a couple of days before it was due to take place, and thought it might be fun to do. I booked it straightaway and am so pleased I did! It turned out that I was the only student who had booked for that day's class, but Kathryn was happy to accommodate me nevertheless, and having the one to one tuition was great. It meant I didn't feel at all rushed, or that I had to keep up with others, and could ask as many questions as I liked, but I'm sure it would have been just the same had the class been full. I had never done anything like it before, but Kathryn is so lovely, friendly and patient, and her teaching so clear and easy to follow, that I was confident that, with her help, I could achieve a good result. I'm thrilled with my first effort, and once I've had chance to practise the techniques for a while, I will have no hesitation in booking on the intermediate class to extend my new found skills. Thank you so much, Kathryn, for a wonderful and relaxing morning, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I really enjoyed this session!
Creating a Mandala from scratch was great fun and Kathryn made the workshop fun and interesting.
I have continued with the Mandala drawing afterwards.
Would certainly recommend it!
Response from Mandala Meadow:I'm so pleased you enjoyed it and thank you for your review. It was lovely to meet you. I hope you get a great many years of enjoyment creating Mandalas!
Clear instruction during live zoom session followed by pdf sheets. A very relaxed workshop, very satisfying.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Caroline. It was lovely to see you again for another class. And thank you for sigining up for my art club this month. Looking forward to introducing you to Arabic geometry. It's fascinating!
My partner and I have just finished the beginner class with Kathryn. So insightful, so meditative, so slow.. completely immersed, a real pleasure!
Kathryn distills her advice while letting us get into the depths of the mandala world.
Again, a real pleasure and willingness to continue!
Response from Mandala Meadow:It was a lovely evening. I'm so pleased you both got so much out of it and I hope to see you for another class soon.
I booked the course for my daughters birthday and she really enjoyed it. Kathryn was very patient and understanding and the course was so enjoyable. It gave Niamh a wonderful insight into the history and design of this ancient craft, a delightful morning, many thanks!
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thanks, Kathryn. I'm so pleased she enjoyed it. It was a lovely morning.
Great workshop, Kathryn is a great teacher, giving us plenty of time to complete each section. She makes the sessions relaxing and fun. Shame there was only two of us, but so nice to have time to meet another lovely lady and her beautiful cat.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Liz! That really is appreciated. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.
I was the group organiser for a private event with Kathryn for on Tuesday 23rd November. It was the most relaxing workshop that I have ever attended. I think we all wondered if we would be able to create such an intricate pattern, but believe me, were all were really happy with the end results! The instructions were so clear and Kathryn's Powerpoint presentation on screen meant that no one get lost along the way.
For anyone who likes doodling - this is the craft for you. You learn how to make a precise base template with just a compass, clear ruler, protractor and HB pencil and from that point Kathryn guides you on how to create the intricate patterns. No need to worry if you pattern doesn't look perfect when you are creating it - this craft is very forgiving and it's almost impossible to spot any imperfections.
Kathryn was also able to help us source some really good value compasses and pens for the event which was a great help. After the event she also sends participants the Powerpoint slides of her session and a pdf with some further patterns that they can incorporate into your own designs. If you want to reward a team with a good, calming and inspiring activity, this is the one to do!! We are all addicted!!
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Jill. It was great to meet you all and I'm so pleased everyone enjoyed it. It was a fun afternoon. We all need a creative outlet, especially in these strange times and mandala drawing is very beneficaial for our mental health, particularly for relaxation - it's a great stress buster. And I find it so rewarding when people who say they can't draw are delighted with the results they achieve drawing a mandala.
Loved it. Did this for my wife’s 30th and it was such good fun, very relaxing and generally a great way to spend a morning. Kathryn was wonderful!
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thanks, Will. It was great to meet you both and I'm so pleased you and your wife enjoyed the class. I hope it was a fun surprise for her birthday.
Kathryn was wonderful, it was my first attempt at drawing a mandala and she helped me though it, explained all about the history and methods of it. I really enjoyed drawing the video was so simple and easy to follow and I managed to draw the pattern on my own, was very proud of myself. Thank you Kathryn, you made it so easy from zoom. Looking forward to do more.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you so much, Shanaz. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it and got such satisfaction out of creating mandalas. I look forward to seeing more of your artwork. I hope you'll join me for another class soon.
My first online workshop during lockdown. I have been looking for something to re-kindle my creativity and finally found it. Mandala drawing suits my style of intricate drawing and I am now hooked. A great workshop run by Kathryn who was very patient and explained the process very well. I am now using the follow up notes to create a Mandala, hopefully worthy of putting on display. Thanks Kathryn.
Response from Mandala Meadow:My pleasure! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your artwork. I hope you'll share it in our Facebook group and thank you for joining!
This class was simple and fun - I really enjoyed it. I feel able to take what I have learned and continue with my own pieces. And the website has given me some great ideas.
Kathryn was extremely accommodating in terms of when I had the class. I ended up in a class on my own as I couldn't manage the times she normally does but it was not a problem for her.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thanks Ruth. It was great to meet you and I so pleased you enjoyed my class (despite the inital technical glitches). And thank you for joining my Facebook group. I hope to see you again soon.
So enjoyed this. Kathryn gave a brief background to the use of mandalas around the world. Her instructions were clear and I have learned the basics of producing a mandala, also with an idea of the further complexities which are possible and will be fun to explore. Anyone who likes drawing and patterns will enjoy this beginner course and will be intrigued to learn more.
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you so much, Jackie. I'm so pleased you found it interesting as well as enjoyable. I hope what you have learnt gives you many more hours of enjoyment and creativity.
Loved the course, so nice just having a few people, it felt more 'homely' more intimate.
The level was pitched just right, and Kathryn gave us plenty of time to catch up.
Can't wait to do the next level.
Thank you Kathryn
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thank you, Liz. It was a lovely morning. I'm so pleased you loved it. I do prefer to keep the class size small where possible, just 5 or 6 people ideally. Although it does work surpsingly well with larger groups too. Looking forward to seeing you again before too long!
It was so relaxing. Kathryn was very patient and such fun. I was so pleased with what I had learned. I think I'm addicted to Mandalas now! Highly recommend this course
Response from Mandala Meadow:Thanks Emma. I think that's a wonderful addiction! It was lovely to meet you and I hope to see you again sometime. So pleased you enjoyd the class.

Response from Mandala Meadow:That's great, Kate. Thank you so much for the feedback. People are often pleasnatly surprised by what they can achieve in this class and its alway so nice to hear about it.
