Inspiring Needle Felted Mandala Community Art Project

A few years ago we interviewed Karen Lohn, author of Peace Fibres, about the multidimensional role that fiber work plays in developing relationships across cultures, generations, and in personal relationships. Karen recently contacted us about her wonderful needle felted mandala community art project that uses Living Felt fibers — a great example of how fiber connects people.

“The project was inspired by my own wish to do something meaningful, coupled with our church in transition, needing a symbol of unity and purpose; I proposed the mandala (actually conducted a church service around it) and set it up so that congregants could contribute throughout an entire year. It now hangs in the sanctuary and really was a meaningful project as well as symbol.

From that, other mandalas arose as various organizations expressed similar wishes. Each is unique, each begins as chaos which gradually becomes beauty as all contributions are valued and connected.

The mandalas are so representative of the theme of Peace Fibres (and, I think, of Living Felt) in that fibres serve as a medium of deep connection and meaning.”

Karen has helpedĀ groups such as church congregations, high school art classes, festival attendees, professional organizations, and healing groups create unifying mandalas. She has graciously shared a PDF about the needle felted mandala community art for anyone interested in the project.

You can see more of Karen’s work on her web site Peace Fibres.
