Mandala art fascinates individuals across the world.
The geometry of the designs, colours and patterns resonate with something deep inside – but for those of us not practiced in the art, the idea of creating a mandala seems far beyond our reach.
I’m a contemporary mandala artist and have taught thousands how to make magic with this ancient art form.
I know (because I’m asked if I’ll do it all the time) that many thousands more would benefit from a simple introduction to the mandala so I’ve decided to share this online workshop for a limited time.
MANDALAS MADE EASY for Beginners contains three separate instructional demonstrations you can use to create beautiful mandalas time and time again – even if you can’t draw!
These fool-proof techniques will help you quickly learn how to create an amazing array of mandala designs and is perfect for beginners.

MANDALAS MADE EASY for Beginners is FREE!
Why am I offering this workshop free of charge? Simple – I want as many people as possible to benefit from the mandala as much as I have!
The techniques I’ll show you throughout this workshop form the foundation of the construction methods I use in my own mandala practice in addition to being included in the foundation content for my twelve-month program MANDALA DAYS.
Is it the full story? Well, no – I don’t think so. I truly believe that working with the mandala is a conscious practice that offers most benefit when we dig deeper and that’s why the in-depth programs are where I focus my attention and business.
However – there always needs to be an entry point and this workshop can act as a gateway to your own experience with the mandala as symbol.
Learning these few techniques can lead to many years of fruitful and meaningful creative practice for you, whether you decide to dig deeper or not!
In my experience, the mandala is an archetype that is moving through our contemporary consciousness at a rate never previously experienced. The mandala is making itself known. It is coming out of hiding and into the consciousness of the greater population.

Frequently Asked Questions + Answers!
Who is this program designed for?
Mandalas Made Easy is designed for people of all genders across the world who wish to learn how to design + draw unique, beautiful mandalas.
You don’t need to have any special skills, experience or qualifications to participate. You’re likely to have an interest in creative expression through visual art and feel called to work with the mandala as symbol. In this regard, you may be a beginner or an experienced artist.
Please note: Mandalas Made Easy is an extract from my in-depth program MANDALA DAYS and will reference this work, where we explore the mandala art form as part of the expression of our self-inquiry practice.
Throughout Mandala Days we explore practices to ground your interest in the ‘spiritual’ aspect of being back to your own direct, everyday experience and those who participate have an interest in personal psychology and the innate drive towards self-actualisation.
Mandala Days also provides a structure to contain your self inquiry process, connect your creativity with your inner inquiry and come to more intimately understand your behaviours and actions in the world, so although you don’t need to have an interest in these topics, the content you will receive in Mandalas Made Easy is created from that standpoint.
Mandalas Made Easy is open to everyone with access to an internet enabled device and an email address. There is no gender limitation or age limit (over 18’s only – thank you – although you will be able to share + practice the techniques with young ones!)
Do I need to be an artist to complete this workshop?
You don’t need to have any special skills, experience or qualifications to participate, but will benefit best if you have an interest in creative expression through visual art and feel called to work with the mandala as symbol. In this regard, you may be a beginner or an experienced artist.
You don’t need to be ‘good at art’ to participate, simply willing to engage with the process and see what shows up for you. Using the three foundation techniques (an extract from MANDALA DAYS) you will be able to construct different mandala forms and create a full range of individual designs each time.
If you are already an artist and wish to explore the basics of mandala construction, then you’ll also benefit from the container, structure and demonstrations within the workshop.
If you have previously participated in Mandala Magic or the Five Days of Mandala Magic, then you’ll find this workshop is an evolution of that work, providing you with an opportunity to further develop your unique style.
What supplies do I need to participate?
You will definitely need a compass, a pencil, a ruler and an eraser.
Additionally, you’ll need something to colour in your work and a substrate to create on.
You may work in your preferred medium. That can include watercolours, gouache, inks, acrylics, illustration/paint pens or collage and you may wish to use a mix of these to explore mixed media – the choice is yours!
Your chosen substrate will ideally be A4/Letter size or larger, although you can choose to create smaller images if this suits your style.
If you’re a beginner, then I suggest you work from a limited range of materials until you decide what works best for you. Although it’s tempting to go out and collect a whole boatload of new shiny supplies, it’s not necessary to have a comprehensive range to participate in Mandalas Made Easy.
Throughout the workshop, I demonstrate using a range of fineliner pens and alcohol markers.
Can I join in from my city?
This workshop is delivered to you online, so as long as you have a valid email address and are able to access a computer/device with internet access, you are able to participate from anywhere in the world.
The content will be delivered on this website with a mix of writing, some video and audio, so you will additionally need to be able to stream video and audio.
Do I need to attend classes in real time?
The content is hosted on the website for you to access at your own pace. There’s no need to show up at a specific time, so you won’t miss out if you’re in a different time zone, or need to login after your day’s work.
The content is available for you to access immediately after sign up and is designed to work through in a few days.
Because this is a free workshop prior to the beginning of Mandala Days it will only be available for a limited time. You will receive notification by email prior to it being closed.
How long will the workshop take to complete?
Depending on your experience, you’ll need to allocate up to two – three hours to complete each of the three modules. The workshop is designed for you to complete it within three days.
If you choose to create mandala art with more detail, in a larger format or in layers that need to dry, then you’ll need to allocate a longer period of time.
What happens when I register?
As soon as you complete the sign up process here, you are ready to begin straight away, no delays – yay!
You will receive confirmation of your registration by email (so make sure you enter a valid email address upon sign up!) The email contains a link to the first module.
