The circle is considered a sacred symbol in many cultures. Mandalas are sacred circles, usually comprised of repeating symmetrical designs, often used in the practice of meditation. Tibetan Sand Paintings, Islamic prayer rugs, The famous Rose Window in Notre Dame are all examples of mandalas; even Medieval and Renaissance Masters like Albrecht Durer and Fibonacci, explored these circular designs also referred to as Sacred Geometry. In this class, you will create your own personal Mandala in colors and stitches of your choice. The stitching process is very therapeutic and meditative and the basic stitches fairly simple. Assembled into an ever increasing circle, they form and intricate tapestry of form and texture.
