Tyneside Mind in partnership with Mindfulness Based Therapies are offering an introductory Mindful Knitting workshop.
This exciting new workshop – the first of its kind in the North East – combines the creativity of knitting with the soothing benefits of mindfulness. Knitting, like mindfulness, requires us to pay attention over and over again, to what is happening in the present moment. It can be simple, it can be complex, it can be meditative and soothing. We feel the yarn, we count stitches, we move our hands. With practice we can bring more focus to this task and practice mindful knitting.
The workshop is on Sunday 30th November 2014 from 1pm-4pm at Tyneside Mind Wellbeing Centre, Bensham – NE8 4QL
This workshop is open to all. No experience of mindfulness meditation or knitting required. Though experienced knitters and/or meditators are also welcome! All equipment provided.
As this is the first workshop we are offering it at a specially discounted donation-based price. Simply pay £10 deposit to secure your place. And if you are able to give some more on the day then that would be greatly appreciated.
