Mandala making with Hana Ayoob - 17 November - 17 November 2021

Please note that this event has passed.

This is a fun, interactive making session led by Hana Ayoob, illustrator and science communicator, open to all King's students.

Grab coloured and patterned paper from your recycling and junk mail and get ready to turn them into a mandala. We’ll explore the history and culture of mandalas, and how simple shapes can be combined to create intricately beautiful designs.

Essential materials


Glue (ideally a glue stick/other fast drying glue)

2 pieces of card or strong paper (at least A4 size) to use as bases for your artwork. The side of a box would work.

A selection of recycled paper/thin card in different colours or patterns such as junk mail, magazines, leaflets, packaging.

Other useful materials:

Compass / circular objects to draw around

Pens or pencils

A hole punch

Other punches (e.g. the sort used for card making or scrapbooking)
