Mandalas are created with geometric shapes and curvilinear lines, and often incorporate ancient spiritual symbols that are significant in Hinduism and Buddhism. These intricate designs transfer beautifully into stiches on fabric! Judy will show you a variety of embroidery stitches with time to practice.

Then choose a pattern and personalize it with the colors you choose and the types of stitches you incorporate. If you know the basics, try some fancy stitches to add to your repertoire. Finished pieces can be hung in the provided hoops or added onto another project.

This workshop is held in conjunction with visiting Tibetan Monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery who will be creating a large mandala sand painting September 24-28 at the MU. The dul-tson-kyil-khor (sand mandala) will be made over a four day period using millions of grains of carefully-placed sand. Once complete, the mandala is deconstructed - a metaphor of the impermanence of life. A schedule the opening and closing ceremonies, open viewing times, and the Symbolism of the Sand Mandala lecture are at sub.iastate.edu, and sponsored by Student Union Board.
