We Weave workshop with Create to Cope (Ages 8+)

This workshop is presented especially for younger people during the school holidays. 

Using wooden panels, paint, stencils and (most importantly!) heaps of lovely beads and thread, we make woven panels with layers of shapes and colours that interact. Simplicity is the key here, and the tactile nature of weaving makes this a relaxing and rewarding workshop.

This workshop gives us the chance to talk about simplicity, unity, mindfulness and the importance of having relaxing activities built into our weekly schedule.

The Presenter

'Create to Cope' is a tiny community arts project run by Frances and Nathan Hoyle. We both reckon that visual arts are a great platform for young people to learn about life, balance, individuality and community. We use simple, vibrant projects to give young artists the confidence and self-efficacy to participate in the arts and to face some of the tricky bits of life. Mixed in with the paint and masking tape are informal chats about identity, resilience, positive coping skills and community.

Presented as part of the City of Stirling's Mind Your Arts Program.
