Celebrate Losar with an afternoon of free art making and learning

Losar Family Day
Celebrate the Year of the Metal Ox
Sunday, February 7
Drop in from 1:00–4:00 PM


February is already upon us, but there's still another New Year celebration on the horizon! Join us this weekend for our annual family event in honor of Losar, the Tibetan New Year observed throughout the Himalayas.

This afternoon of art making and fun is inspired by the year of the wise and determined Metal Ox. You’ll learn about traditional Losar celebrations, make your own ox horns, construct prayer flags, and more!

Plan an intimate workshop to relax and bond with the people you love this Valentine's Day! Try a sound bath workshop with a certified sound practitioner. Absorb some sonic healing and learn to process the world around you through breathwork, meditation, and (of course) sound! Or if you are looking for a new creative outlet, try a virtual "outing" with friends and learn the art of paper-folding with an artist-led origami workshop.
