Biodiversity Week Workshop: Help us build a Nature Mandala


Free of charge


18/05/2024 - 18/05/2024
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


The John F. Kennedy Arboretum

A birch tree is surrounded by a mandala made from flowers, cones and leaves. Concentric circles are divided into segments. White rhododendron flowers feature.

Suitable for all the family

Free of charge. Places are on a first come basis.

In its simplest form, a mandala is a circular structure with a design that radiates out symmetrically from the centre. You can find mandalas in flowers, tree rings, spider webs, seashells and more.

Promoting colour and creativity, this workshop guides children to create their own geometric patterns into the wider radiating structure of a large forest mandala. Using plant materials sourced from around the Arboretum such as rhododendron petals, fallen camellia flowers, palm leaves and a selection of cones, you will learn more about the beauty and biodiversity of trees.
