At Cowshed Creative, we run an extensive range of art, craft and heritage workshops in our beautifully converted art studio, on our traditional farm in the heart of the Lake District.
Kantha is a meditative rhythmic sewing technique that enables the mind to rest whilst creating a beautiful design. During this relaxing wellness session, you will stitch either a hare or tree of life, using simple stitches on linen. At the end of the session, you leave rested with a design for a scented lavender bag. All levels of stitchers are welcome, and the kit comes with everything you need to finish this lavender bag
