Weaving on a hand loom 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 for an hour or two, my ‘Weaving as Meditation’ workshop is the perfect place to start.
The online workshop 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 workshop 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
One-to-one workshops are held via Zoom. A one hour session is suitable if you have some weaving experience before and costs $50. I would advise a 1.5 hour session if you are new to handweaving, which is $75 and a two hour session for all levels is $100. Small group sessions are also available; please get in touch to find out about pricing.
Once you have purchased an online workshop, I will be in touch to arrange a free 15 minute call to assess your needs so we can be sure to make the most of the workshop together.
I look forward to working with you and helping you to discover the mindfulness of weaving.
