Practicing mindfulness through creating artwork is the goal of a series of community workshops to be held this month. 

Locals are invited to participate in making sculptures of weaving and clay, as a means to find peace and centering.

“The Creative Mindfulness workshops are for adults who are seeking calmness,” explained workshop facilitator, Cynamon Aeria.

“Participants don’t need to have previous experience or skills. We will be using locally found natural materials, native seeds, clay and easy sculptural techniques, to create large, hanging sculptural artworks that will be shared with the wider community.”

The workshops came about as a wish to acknowledge the recent experiences of loss and stress in the Margaret River community.

Through collaboration by the Margaret River Uniting Church, Wild Art Weaving and Tig-Le House, the workshops will provide a supportive space for adults to honour, to create for, and to share with the Margaret River Community.

The Creative Mindfulness Workshops will be held 14 and 15 September, 10-3 pm at the Margaret River Uniting Church.

Cost is $30 per workshop and proceeds will be donated to Suicide Prevention Margaret River. For info and bookings go to margaretriveruniting.com/2018/08/29/creative-mindfulness-workshops/
