Tibetan Monk Butter Sculpture Workshop

The Bemis School of Art is hosting Tibetan Monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery for a butter sculpture workshop
Saturday, July 17 | 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The monks will work with children and adults to create traditional sculptures made from butter, as has been done in Tibet for over 800 years. This workshop will begin with a demonstration by the monks and will be followed by the opportunity for each participant to make his/her own butter sculpture. Suggested donation $12.00 However no one will be turned away due to a lack of funding.

This workshop is organized locally by the Gaden Shartse Monastery Foundation and Thubten Shudrup Ling as part of a series of events at Colorado College's Shove Chapel that feature healing meditation, dancing, and chants. It is the Gaden Shartse Monastery Foundation's mission to not only help preserve the rich Tibetan culture, but also to share its ancient wisdom with the people of the United States.
