Come and immerse yourself in the creative slow craft of weaving while you explore some self care and mindfulness approaches.
In this four-hour workshop, Lauren will teach several weaving techniques and show you how to create your own beautiful and custom 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.
We'll provide you with everything you need to start your weaving journey – a loom, weaving tool kit, ethical and sustainable yarn and roving, as well as afternoon tea.
This class is perfect for beginners and anyone curious about weaving and how to start this beautiful craft.
