Lynne K reviewed: Mandala drawing - Beginners

"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."

Jill Prior reviewed: Mandala drawing for beginners (private large group)

"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!!"

Mandala Meadow responded:

" 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."

Looking forward to do more."

Moira reviewed: Mandala drawing - Beginners

"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."

Ruth reviewed: Mandala drawing - Beginners

"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."

Mandala Meadow responded:

" 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."

Liz Tipping reviewed: Mandala drawing - Beginners

"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"

" 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!"
