The repetitiveness of embroidering; the movement of the needle from back to front of the fiber and back again, these repetitive hand motions require focus, alleviate stress and instill a sense of the here-and-now such as in mindfulness.
Artist Aurora Molina will collaborate with other textile artists from Fiber Artists Miami Association (FAMA) and lead this workshop inviting participants to push away negative thoughts and instead thread them on canvas rather than burdening their minds.
This workshop highlights the importance of social engagement for positive change, participation in community group workshops that require dedication, patience, and understanding social and textile traditions.
