|A workshop introducing the art of colored sand mandalas
This workshop is suitable for children as from age 8 as well as adults. In two hour sessions, the monks present the ancient technique of Mandala creation. By rubbing against cones filled with coloured sand, the monks draw complex designs. The participants can practice the creation of simple designs, like a flower for example.
The workshop can be offered while the monks are doing the five elements mandala (Leg Natso) in a single day, or while doing the much more elaborate deity mandalas which can take up to four or five days.
|A workshop introducing the creation of butter sculptures

The monks will explain the technique in two hour sessions and the participants can then create simple designs by themselves. This workshop is suitable for children aged 8 and older as well as for adults.
Time needed: two hours.
