'Dharma Without Words'
Thangka Painting Workshop with Andy Weber
3 - 6 May 2019
A rare opportunity: the art of Thangka painting in Tibetan Buddhism from a modern master.
This is a practical workshop and will focus on the image of Buddha Shakyamuni, which forms the basis for the whole Tibetan Buddhist iconography. We will explore the deeper symbolism and meaning in relation to the Buddha's teachings and legacy in sacred art. Students will receive hands-on-tuition to learn about the ancient craft of tangkha painting (drawing and painting techniques, natural paints, brushes and canvas). The seminar includes meditation and mantra recitation which enhances the inner experience. By realising the inner Buddha one begins the process of self-healing and exploration.
This course is suitable for both beginner and advanced students of sacred art.
Andy will also be giving a Public Talk:
