Mindfulness and Creativity – Weaving from the Heart (Tapestry Weaving) Workshop
June 4 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm£70.00
In our modern life we often struggle to find the space to nurture our creative selves. In this workshop you’ll be supported in honouring your creative soul!
The process of weaving is meditative. A nurturing space and safe allows us to connect with something deeper – our authentic selves. To sit with a quiet mind before a warped up loom, allows an organic process to unfold.
Focusing on process rather than the end result, Jo will teach mindful weaving (from the heart) on ready-warped small frame looms (these can be purchased for £15.00, if desired).
Jo will supply yarn but feel free to bring yarns of any type from your own stash if you’d like to.
Joanna Gosling is a tapestry weaver and finds that weaving and mindfulness are a perfect fit: much of her weaving work depicts the healing effects of Mindfulness and self-compassion, as understood through neuroscience. Last year, she worked for 3 weeks in Peru with master weaver Maximo Laura. She worked as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS and is a trained Mindfulness Teacher (listed with UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teachers) and now spends most of her time creating fibre art.
