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.
