After Work Art: Mindful Making

Art at Home

Set aside some time to connect with others and stretch your creative muscles this Friday. Local artist Anjum Olmo will share how she looks to her Indian heritage for inspiration. She is fascinated by the art of  henna and uses the mandala approach to bring mindfulness into her art practice. Participants will be inspired to make their own meditative, mindful patterns onto a handmade postcard. Bring along a sense of adventure and humour, as you will be letting go, embracing imperfections and going with the flow. A material list is provided below for you to gather from your existing supplies at home.
