From Quiet Connections CIC, regular workshops around creativity and community.
Their Eventbrite page explains:
Spread messages of kindness to empower yourself and others who feel socially anxious and not enough. Through the quiet act of yarn bombing & craftivism, we’ll be letting others know that we’re all in this together and that we’re all enough, just as we are.
Take part at your own pace in the #WeAreEnough Yarn Bombing & Craftivism community project at the Quiet Connections Pool group.
WHAT WILL YOU GAIN FROM THIS PROJECT?
- Gently try something new and have a go at learning or expanding your creative skills with drop-in knitting & crocheting, cross stitch & embroidery, applique, and pattern designing workshops.
- Grow confidence through recognising and celebrating your own quiet strengths and qualities as you explore the kind words and empowering designs that you’ll create to share the message that #WeAreEnough
- Practise mindfulness and self-compassion with the aid of creative activities – perhaps even discovering new ways to self-care!
- Connect with other like-minded people, practise social abilities, and stretch comfort zones in a safe and supportive place.
You are welcome to join at any of the dates with the opportunity to pick up the activities and learn from one another throughout. Feel free to use the open ‘Quiet Time’ sessions at the group on the 3rd Thursday of each month (or find some space throughout the Speaking Practise sessions) for additional time to continue on your project.
Go to Eventbrite to let them know you’re coming – several dates are available, on Thursday mornings at Heartlands, Pool.
