Fiber Craft for a Fuller Life: Untangling the Knots of Stress Through Creativity and Fiber Arts

 

Through an array of meditative activities, this group explores the benefits of fiber arts on the mind and body. Much of the fiber comes from the animals of Cultivate Care Farms, where farm-based therapeutic activities are woven into the fiber of this crafty group. No fiber arts or crafting experience necessary, no materials necessary. Outside projects are welcome and invited. Instruction and Guidance provided.

Topics Covered: Needle felting, Hand Spinning, Knitting and Crocheting Instruction, and Improvisational weaving

Additional Topics: Skirting, cleaning, carding and spinning wool; Animal care and fiber arts; Implications of self-care, and creative expression for a balanced life; Mindfulness and movement practices
