Some Photos from our May 15 Tibetan Drawing Class with Dara Juels

Khandroling Paper Cooperative  met in the library at Tsegyalgar East on Sunday, May 15 for a day-long workshop dedicated to Tibetan drawing as part of an ongoing series focusing on the elements. Sunday's class worked with the various manifestations of Flames taught by Dara Juels using home videos of her Tibetan husband, Yangjur who trained in Tibetan arts. Following the workshop, we took a guided tour of the Tibetan art located in the Schoolhouse shrine room where we could exam firsthand the many types of flames used

Naturally, we had some "show and tell." Brenda Lilly brought in a new Lotus origami example she created to accommodate the the Mani mantra with six petals (instead of eight in our previous template) and the final HRIH inserted in the center. 

Khandroling Paper Cooperative welcomes new members Paul Lewis from Pittsfied, MA and Kichung Lizee aka "K" from Shelburne Falls (who will teach two Calligraphy workshops in the Fall).

Here is  Amanda Pollock's clever Lotus Mobile to house the sound system needed to project the music for the NYC parade Khaita Tibetan dancers will need. 

Our next workshop is Sunday June 5 with Sheryl Jaffe.
