Create a Tibetan Amulet
NYC – Rubin Museum of Art – evening workshop
Evening class with artist Carmen Mensink, who returns to the Rubin Museum to lead an Tibetan Buddhist amulet-making workshop inspired by the 2016 exhibition ‘Nepalese Seasons: Rain and Ritual.’
This evening you will learn about the beauty and wonder of Nepal’s seasonal rituals and how their themes, such as abundance and compassion, are relevant in our own lives.
You will make one amulet focusing either on Vasudhara, the Buddhist goddess of Abundance and Wealth, honored in Nepal before planting, or Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, invoked to encourage monsoon rains that nourish the earth and open the heart.
All materials are included.
