Research has shown that the regular practise of a craft activity has a positive impact on our mental health. Join author Rose Davidson for a workshop to still the mind and soothe the soul. Rose will illuminate how craft practice re-introduces balance into our lives and our habits by cultivating creativity, carving space for ourselves, promoting focus, creating a safe space for failure, and ultimately, how to make peace with imperfection.
This will be a mending and darning session using ideas from Japanese boro stitching.
Please bring along some items to repair or fabric scraps, all other materials will be provided.
Books will be on sale and the event will be followed by a book signing.
