In this three-hour workshop, Lauren will teach you several weaving techniques and show you how to create your own round woven wall hanging. Sarah, a registered psychologist, will help you bring mindful moments into your weaving, which you can later implement into other areas of your life. Even if you already know a little about mindfulness, Sarah will introduce you to a model of self-awareness that you can take home and use to make sure you’re pursuing the things that matter to you most. Weaving lends itself beautifully to practicing mindfulness skills, whilst being creative and productive. The cost of the workshop includes an embroidery hoop to weave your wall hanging on, weaving tools and fluffy roving.
Sarah is a registered psychologist, working with children, teens and adults. She incorporates mindfulness into her sessions with clients and sees successful outcomes when clients regularly practice them.
Lauren is a teacher, and self-taught weaver, after having found a love for weaving in the throes of newborn-mayhem three years ago.
