The next Sutra Stitching Workshop is Sunday March 15th.
In this workshop, we will explore the link between textile craftwork and mindfulness. Both hand-stitching and meditation have been proven to reduce stress and increase levels of well-being. This workshop uses both the hands and the breath, to reconnect you to a state of inner calm.
The workshop is two hours, and will begin and end with a simple Kundalini meditation. In between, we will try out simple hand-stitching techniques such as patchwork and kantha running stitch.
I am looking to make this a monthly event at a central Sydney venue, but in the meantime I have found a yoga studio off Bondi Road with a peaceful garden. I also have some new ideas for expanding the format, inviting special guests – artists, scientists, home-crafters – to share their stories and insights into the link between wellness, textiles and craft. Watch this space!
