About the event
Let's explore the intersection of mindfulness and craft. Perhaps you already experience certain physical, mental or emotional benefits from knitting? Maybe knitting is a calming practice - or perhaps you’d like it to be? In this gathering, we will learn and share different ways that our knitting can support our mindfulness, connection and greater overall wellbeing. Bring any project you're currently working on (something simple that doesn’t require a complex pattern so that you can focus on the process rather than a particular technique), and join us for this facilitated experience which will include an introduction to crafting meditation practice, and group sharing. All stitchers are welcome. No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation is required. Tea will be served.
