Evening Meeting – May 1: Buddist Thangkas

The evening meeting is this Thursday, starting at 7.30pm, in the Cook Community Hub Hall.

Guest speaker is Edie Young from the National Gallery of Australia talking about Buddhist Thangkas – how they are made and used. Apprentices train for 3 years to learn to design draw, mark, cut and applique pieces of silk brocade to make brilliant sacred images for wall hangings.

The library will be open to members after the meeting – check out the new books listed for April here . Raffle, lucky door prize, name badge draw. If you can’t make the Biggest Morning Tea on 4 May perhaps you would like to make a tax-deductible donation or buy a raffle ticket at this meeting – Kay will be happy to take your money.

You can also take raffle books to sell tickets in this year’s exhibition raffle.

  1. Edie Young’s presentation on Budhist Thangkas was a real eye-opener. What a beautiful and intricate art is involved in producing these amazing spiritual works! I am so glad I was there to see it.
