Welcome to A Tranquil Nook Blog

We welcome you to follow along on our crafty adventures. Frank is a farmer by day, jewelry and hand braided cord-maker by night. Jane simply fiddles with fabric and fiber any time she can. We share things about what we make, how we make it, where you can get it.

Drawing Mandalas with Shami Orkibi

A session in Mandala making with Shami Orkibi, Mandala Artist, leading the group. Saying little, drawing along with the group, Shami teaches by example and with quietness.

Making art with friends. Sitting quietly, listening to the sound of pens, markers, crayons, pencils move on paper.  Chatting occasionally. Absorbed and focused on the colors and movements and design appearing on the paper in front of you. 

 Influenced and stretched by the techniques, styles, shapes and way others create their designs.  This is one way that art styles, methods are shared and spread.  

Useful, bonding, peaceful.  A beautiful time and way to be present together.

My wish for you today is that you too may experience the joy of making art with friends.

Thanks for stopping in for a read.
