This class isn’t just about learning to embroider - it’s so much more! We’ll discuss specific ways craft can be used as therapy and how embroidery in particular can help relieve anxiety and depression, as well as promote mindfulness. Did you know that if practised regularly, slow crafting can even help rewire your brain?
The workshop will begin with a guided meditation to help us set our intentions for how we’d like to feel during our session together. I’ll then teach you the embroidery basics as well as some of my favourite mindful stitches. Together we’ll each produce a ‘stitch therapy sampler’, a piece containing lines, patterns and more, designed to make the embroidery process even more therapeutic.
Through a little science, group demonstrations and one-to-one tuition, my aim is that you’ll leave the workshop armed with everything you need to practise #stitchingformentalheath in your own time.
