In this full day workshop we will be exploring mindfulness through the process of creating textiles. This will be an in-depth look at weaving, stitching and how we can cultivate a mindfulness practice for ourselves as well as our students in the classroom. We will be experiencing the benefits of slowing down and creating unique art pieces. This workshop will teach you the basics of weaving and stitching. I will share with you other artists’ work to use as inspiration, and give a brief history of textile work. There will be time to practice the techniques I share with you, group discussions and reflections on the creative process, and how all of the information learned can be brought into your classroom and shared with your students. This workshop is open to everyone, no previous experience required. All materials and handouts will be provided for.
