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! And it will take you into a meditative place without even trying!
All my works are hand drawn and hand painted and are created using pencil, inks and acrylics.
"Absolutely fantastic. I have a tremor but was delighted that I could still create a mandala. Tasmin was amazing thank you for an amazing time and the start of a new mindful hobby."
" Thank you so much for your lovely review Susan. It was a pleasure to have you and despite your difficulties, I was very impressed with your beautiful mandala. It just demonstrated that anybody can do this activity.
I'm so pleased you have found a new mindful creative hobby.
"Absolutely amazing workshop. Tamsin is a brilliant teacher - she is enthusiastic, calm and encouraging. I enjoyed creating my first ever mandala in Tamsin’s beautiful studio with amazing views of the surrounding countryside. I highly recommend this workshop as a calming and mindful way of learning a new skill that is good for your mental health. I also bought Tamsin’s beautifully put together kit, so I can carry on making mandalas at home.
Thank you Tamsin
