Seeing an accomplished artist at work and witnessing the process of artistic creation can be a moving and mind-stopping experience. I had the privilege to spend some time in the company of Naljorma Nyima Gyalmo, who is an experienced appliqué artist. This short video will give you a glimpse into the level of precision involved and the dedication required. What struck me most was the quality of Nyima’s presence – a kind of one-pointed yet spacious attention and full immersion in the creative process.
On the 17th of November, Nyima will run a workshop where you can ask her questions about appliquéd thangkas and try some of these techniques yourself.
