Weaving as Meditation
October 16, 4PM EST / IPM PT
October 16, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Weaving on a handloom is joyful, gratifying, and contemplative; it is an ideal antidote to the hustle of our busy lives. If you are searching for a way to reconnect with your inner self and slow your pace, my ‘Weaving as Meditation’ workshop is the perfect place to start. I look forward to working with you and helping you to discover the mindfulness of weaving.
The online class combines handweaving with mindfulness and self-nourishment. In the session, you will discover a traditional and ancestral craft as I guide you in the creation of a simple, beautiful, and useful handweaving. I will teach you about meditation and the benefits of relaxed open breathing while you weave.
The class will give you time to focus on yourself and bring some much-needed peace and tranquility. Through it, you will become part of a long lineage of women’s circles, using your hands to craft in community, as has been done for centuries.
- By the end of the session you will have gained:
- instruction on how to make a handweaving
- teaching on breathing and meditation techniques
- achieved moments of peace and deep stillness
You will need to purchase one Small Loom and Loop Kits and a set of additional loops in order to take part in the weaving class from the instructor.
