Born in Buddhist and Hindu cultures, Mandalas are spiritual and ritual symbols of the universe, or rather a representation of the cosmos in a metaphysical or symbolic sense. The geometric pattern typically resembles a square consisting of four gates containing a circle with a centrepoint.

Embark on a therapeutic journey in a Mandala Making workshop. Work alongside Ivan Monsalve, who has produced artwork professionally for the past five years, though has been drawing since he can remember. Learn about line work, create patterns and work repetitively with different shapes in this meditative workshop. Walk away with your very own mandala as a spiritual reminder of your wholeness and relation to infinity.
