The February Women's Creative Play Date will bee to Weave onto a Branch!
Ever wanted to try your hand at weaving? Here’s a fun way to give it a try! After you sign up for this class you need to do a little homework! Go for a walk outside and find a branch! Everyone needs to bring a branch with them, it needs to be in the shape of a “Y” and at least 12” long. Jennifer will bring cutters in case we need to trim the branches. Then she will teach you how to turn that branch into your loom! All thread and yarn will be provided but feel free to bring any yarn you might want to use or share with the group. This is a great way to use up end pieces from other projects! Narrow (1/4” wide or less) ribbons can also be used. When we are done you will have a fun piece of nature art to put in your home! A great way to bring a little color into your home on a cold winter day! Light refreshments will be provided.
Gather together with other local women for a creative play date! You will explore your own creativity in a safe place where the intentions are: to relax, invest time with other creative spirits, and play with different imaginative techniques. These events are not about the finished product as much as they are the experience. No special “skills” or “talents” are required to attend, just a willingness to be your-self, bee open minded, and bee ready to play. With each Women's Creative Play Date we will explore a different creative process, technique, or activity. We will also incorporate some mindfulness practices as we dip into our Creative Souls – this is meant to be a fun and relaxing event, NOT a stressful one.
Investment: $25. Cash or check to Bee Present Wellness, 309 3rd St. New Cumberland PA 17070. We have a limit of 12 folks in this workshop.
