Creative Amulets


Wednesday, July 20, 2016
6:00 PM–9:00 PM

The artist Carmen Mensink returns to the Rubin Museum to lead an amulet-making workshop inspired by the exhibition Nepalese Seasons: Rain and Ritual. Learn about the wonder and beauty of Nepal’s seasonal rituals and how their themes, such as abundance and compassion, have relevance in our lives. Each participant will make one amulet focusing either on Vasudhara, the Buddhist goddess of wealth and abundance, honored before planting, or Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion, invoked to encourage monsoon rains that nourish the earth and open the heart.

Tickets: $50.00

Member Tickets: $45.00

Please note:

This event will take place in the Rubin Museum Education Center, 132 West 17th Street.
