What is a mandala? A mandala symbolises wholeness and can be seen as an example of the compass to the map of life. A mandala is both the microcosm and the macrocosm of the universe – we are all part of its intricate design which can be seen in nature everywhere. Creating a mandala is therapeutic. It can be used as a vehicle to explore food, art, waste, wellness, sustainability, science, spirituality, and our existence in relation to the planet and each other.
You can easily access mandala making from home by using veggies and fruit – or anything else that you may have in your home. Participants will be encouraged to upload creative photos of their creations to our online platform.
