Learn to make qualified tormas
Saturday 24 November 2018
10.00am – 5.00pm
Tormas are traditional food offerings (usually made of marzipan or fondant) that are offered to the Buddhas in various ritual practices and prayers such as empowerments, retreats and chanted prayers. Representing an offering of great bliss, tormas can range from very simple to exquisitely beautiful.
Kelsang Drime has many years of experience making tormas and is happy to share her skills and experience of making qualified tormas with everyone interested. This course will allow each student to create their own tormas and then in the future create tormas for their Centre. This is a great opportunity to become a qualified torma maker. This workshop consists of practical sessions with experienced torma maker Kelsang Drime. Everyone is welcome. Join us as we learn about the various types of tormas and how to make them in a qualified manner according to the New Kadampa lineage. Everyone is welcome!
