Head & Hands curates and hosts a number of mindful workshops to help busy the hands and quiet the mind through tactile craft. These take place at Holdspace, a centre for arts and wellbeing in Angel, Islington.

Previous workshops include weaving, ceramics, macrame, crystal jewellery making, embroidery, natural dyeing, botanical watercolour painting, calligraphy, cross stitch and printmaking.
Select a date and time that suits you and your teacher will get back to you to confirm if they are available or suggest alternate times.
