Be the first to hear

about new classes:

Make a Model Merkaba Star

$30 for one, $20 for siblings

Tuesday 10am to 12pm

For ages 9 to 16

Learn about the platonic solids and regular polygons, and how mathematicians through out the ages have been interested in these shapes. Learn about the mysteries of the Merkaba (meaning light, spirit, body in hebrew) which is a combination of two tetrahedrons, and consider unified field theory which suggests that the smallest unit of space is a tetrahedron. Develop your own Merkaba template using a compass and a protractor. Use the template to construct a paper model Merkaba star, which you can keep for yourself or use for a delightful Christmas gift.
