Participatory mandala painting is a fun, relaxing and easy activity that can involve everyone no matter what their level of experience. Paint a little or a lot using water-based tempera paint that is easily cleaned up with soap and water.
Amy ‘Biker’ Walker is a self-propelled maker who has a special interest in doing it together with her mobile arts and crafts business, Makemobile. Trained as a craftsperson/designer at Sheridan College’s School of Crafts and Design, Amy has experimented with drawing, producing a magazine, Momentum, and book, On Bicycles, about the new bike culture.
Amy then shifted gears to focus on what turns her own crank: craft and art. She has spent the last five years using natural materials (wool, silk, cotton, linen, etc.) to make textiles, hats and handmade garments and accessories while honing her skills as a facilitator. With Makemobile, a pedal-powered arts and crafts studio, she designs collaborative, hands-on activities that bring people together and create connections.
