border crossings: Mandala Make/Unmake Workshops   Join Arts Educator Sheniz Janmohamed as she makes and unmakes nature mandalas/land art inspired by the flora, fauna and landmarks of Mississauga.  A mandala translates as 'circle' from Sanskrit. The mandala is often used a symbolic tool for ritualistic practices in Buddhist and Vedic traditions. Nature mandalas are created by sourcing found materials in nature and allowing patterns to develop through the act of making, rather than planning. Mandalas are destroyed/taken apart after being created, as a reminder of the impermanence of all things.  Saturdays, 1-3pm on June 8th, June 29th, July 20th, July 27th, August 24th, September 7th, September 14th, October 12th, October 26th, November 2nd and November 23rd.
