This embroidery class will also help you explore mindfulness while stitching which is about to having a deeper awareness of the self in the present moment. You may not be able to complete your design in the workshop but will have all the tools needed to do this at home.
In the class, we will be meditating upon the power of words through the medium of stitch. Words have many Meanings and a great inspiration is ABRA KADABRA!!!! which translates ’as I say I create'. Our words are our wands, and the words we speak hold a lot of weight and give great power to ourselves and the people around us and ultimately informs how we perceive and create our own reality.
What you will learn:
We will be exploring this idea through a series of words which we will translate to stitch. We will start off with friendly welcome. I will be teaching in the class a variety of stitches which include satin, chain, couching, spit stitch, back stitch and French knots. A comprehensive step by step guide will be provided along with all embroidery materials and of course professional guidance from myself.
Why mindful embroidery?
I not only wanted to provide a creative, open space to share but also to engage you all in meditative embroidery. This repetitive hand movement serves as great way to practice meditation, connect to the sacred and attain mindfulness for those of us who find it just too hard to just stop everything, to be silent and still. To be at one with ourselves in a fast-paced world!
