Mindful making & slow stitch workshop

Incorporating simple mindfulness practices, we’ll explore mindful making and slow stitch to create a cosy log cabin-inspired cushion to take home with you. Aviva will guide you in the basics of ‘log cabin’ design to get you started, then it’s over to you. Create your freestyle patchwork piece from a wide selection of plant dyed cloth and threads, exploring natural colours and textures.
