Weaving for Well-being
We believe that weaving helps you BREATHE, gives the mind a little break as it just does what its told for a minute and sits quietly. There’s a slow, calm and super meditative nature to letting your hands do the talking.
Basket Weaving with Emily Hall
We are delighted to be joined in the studio this summer by local ceramicist and basket weaver Emily Hall for a mindful and soulful Foragers Basket weaving workshop, using a mixture of bought, found and foraged seasonal materials to create a stunning hand-woven basket or coiled mat.
Tapestry Weaving with Susannah Bolton
We sleep, but the loom of life never stops, and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up in the morning - Henry Ward Beecher.
Susannah Bolton offers a comprehensive introduction to get you started with weaving - working with stunning hand-made lap looms and a phenomenal selection of vintage yarns. Get lost in the soothing motion of warp and weft..
Macrame with Erin Donohoe
Are you drawn to the moon? Tune into your inner goddess this summer with our Luna Macrame workshop and create a beautiful wall hanging that as a beautiful reminder of that lunar magic! Macrame is a relaxing and therapeutic craft that keeps your hands busy and gives your mind time to rest. The process is meditative and the results a stunning reminder of that little moment of time you allowed yourself to slow down.
