Weaving as Meditation


Weaving on a handloom is joyful, gratifying, and contemplative; it is an ideal antidote to the hustle of our busy lives. If you are searching for a way to reconnect with your inner self and slow your pace, my ‘Weaving as Meditation’ workshop is the perfect place to start.

The workshop combines handweaving with mindfulness and self-nourishment.  In the session, you will discover a traditional and ancestral craft as I guide you in the creation of a simple, beautiful, and useful handweaving.  I will teach you about meditation and the benefits of relaxed open breathing while you weave.  

The class will give you time to focus on yourself and bring some much-needed peace and tranquility.  Through it, you will become part of a long lineage of women’s circles, using your hands to craft in community, as has been done for centuries.

Workshop includes instructions and kit.

The kit includes:

  • A sturdy metal loom, 7"x 7"
  • One bag of flax colored cotton loops which makes two 6" potholders
  • Two hooks (one metal for loop weaving and one plastic for finishing)
  • Instructions to help you step-by-step through the weaving process

By the end of the session you will have gained:

  • instruction on how to make a handweaving
  • teaching on breathing and meditation techniques 
  • achieved moments of peace and deep stillness
