Enjoy this experience and get introduced to both Mandalas drawing and wood burning.
First you will be learning how to draw your own, one-of-a-kind mandala with instructions and support using a custom-made grid. Then, you will learn the basics of pyrography and will wood burn the mandala you drew onto a wood slice for you to take home!
Throughout the experience you will receive step-by-step instructions on techniques for this meditative hobby. You will also use a wide range of burning tools and tips. The intention here is that if you want to continue pyrography at home. You will be equipped with the knowledge on the right tools, the range of prices for machines and necessary accessories, the wood varieties and how they interact with your burner, etc.
All wood burning will be done on flat wood surfaces, but the techniques used can be applied to three-dimensional projects crafted in wood; from shaker boxes and paddles to bird carvings, jewelry and anything else you can imagine!
This experience is meant to be a casual and relaxing moment teaching you to slow down your mind by burning mandalas into wood!
What is a Mandala?
A mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Asian cultures. It can be understood in two different ways: as a visual representation of the universe or as a guide for several practices that take place in many Asian traditions, including meditation. In Hinduism and Buddhism, the belief is that by entering the mandala and proceeding towards its center, you are guided through the cosmic process of transforming the universe from one of suffering into one of joy and happiness.
