OPEN STUDIOS SUNSHINE COAST – Workshop No 1 – Painting Tsa Tsas

Chenrezig Art Studio

About Event:

Chenrezig Institute Art Studio… 

is taking part in the annual sunshine coast Open Studios, and is offering four hands-on workshops in May 2024

The first workshop, on Thursday 23rd May at 1.00pm to 2.30pm is Painting Tsa Tsas

Join us at the Chenrezig Institute Art studio on the Buddhist holy day of Saka Dawa to do some meditative painting of Tsa Tsas, a form of Buddhist sacred art. The practice of making Tsa Tsas has flourished in remote parts of the Himalayas, most notably Tibet. Originally Tsa Tsas are small sacred images made from clay.  Nowadays at the Chenrezig Institute Art Studio we produce Tsa Tsas using plaster or gypsum which allows for greater detail. Tsa Tsas can be found inside Stupas, Prayer Wheels, Sacred caves and on Alters. They may also be given as gifts. 

The creation of sacred objects such as Tsa Tsas is a practice that is said to result in positive energy for the makers, painters and the recipients. 

Statues and paint will be provided and participants will be able to take their sacred objects home.
