Mandala Mania

In common use, "Mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. See this Wikipedia article to learn more about Mandala. Here at Kiln & Crafts though, we find the Mandala a fascinating, fun and beautiful art form and Tracy has caught the Mandala bug!

We are excited to add the Mandala to our offerings of creative art works. Now available to all walk-in customers and scheduled groups alike, we offer Mandala painting on bottles that can be made in to lamps, vases or containers for your bath salts, dish soaps or anything you can think of, Mandala wine glasses, Mandala paint pottery, board-art and yes … even canvas. We have all the supplies, dotting tools, paints and technical advice you need to create your very own masterpiece in this trending and popular form of art!

Drop in at Kiln & Crafts anytime during normal shop hours or schedule a Mandala event for your group outing or party today!
