Calm through Crafting workshops
Bringing Mindfulness to work
I run Calm through Crafting half-day workshops for small groups, typically six to eight participants at a time. For large organisations I can run several workshops
The workshops cover
an introduction to mindfulness
a short breathing meditation
an introduction to knitting
knitting materials and equipment to use during the workshop
support and guidance as participants make their first stitches and knitted work
Giving a little back
Once participants have completed the workshop, they can keep the needles and wool they have been using to continue their mindfulness and crafting practice.
I do suggest that they may like to give a little back and donate their finished knitted squares for charity.
Blankets for the Homeless accepts knitted squares (I can co-ordinate sending the work to a local UK branch).
For large organisations, I can join the pieces together for a finished blanket which can be raffled for the charity of your choice
