Embroidery as meditation started in 2020. During these workshops we creatively and intuitively explore self care politics, collective healing and self knowledge. We generate a space for ritual, allowing our feelings and emotions manifest through repetitive movement and craft making, using art as a healing practice. We share conversation, deep listening, time and skills. We explore the relationship to our body, our ancestral memory and our relationship with nature.
We tend to join in an open air circle to freehand embroidery together and use this practice as a way of grounding, connecting with each other and slowing down.
