BAM Workshop KIDS and Adults: Mandala vegetali

Every first Sunday of the month at BAM there are #nature workshops!

Always divided into two shifts in the morning for younger children and one shift in the afternoon for adults.

The September appointment is dedicated to mandalas.

What is a mandala?

A symbolic design that in Hinduism and Buddhism represents the universe, it has a circular shape and is composed of repeating geometric figures. Creation usually starts from a central point and continues outward: it proceeds by arranging the various materials in a regular, concentric fashion until a circular shape is achieved, all decorated.

The goal is not so much the beauty of the end result as the pleasure and serenity of the gesture. This is what mandalas are: works of calm and concentration, a search for beauty and visual balance.
