    Create a Fabric Meditation Book - Learn this process of fiber arts for your own self-care practice and/or for use with your clients

    About this event

    Over two weeks, come and explore the slow, contemplative process of creating fabric books by hand. We will use simple, intuitive hand stitching techniques that will invite us to let go of needing to have predetermined ideas or patterns and allow the book to reveal itself to us stitch by stitch. This practice is experimental, freeing and calming. Bring along scraps of fabric that you enjoy, some thread and a needle. Extra supplies will be provided.

    This workshop will be hosted by Emma Freeman.

    Emma Freeman is a queer mixed media artist, writer and teacher. Her process is deeply contemplative, playful, and slow. She works across many different mediums, most recently with fibers, textiles, found natural objects and poetry. Her art practice is also her meditation practice which continues to help her heal and transform in powerful ways. She explores Buddhist teachings, wabi sabi principles and various healing philosophies within her art practice, weaving together the physical, tactile art making and the inner reflecting, processing and pondering. She is a highly sensitive person, sober, and a spiritual seeker. She has a Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy and Studio Art from Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. You can learn more about her at www.emmafreemanart.com.

    This workshop is held on two consecutive Saturdays for two hours - September 11 & 18th from 10am-12pm.
