One Loop at a Time - design your own healing mat. An introduction to the instructors's design process of creating inspired, abstract, healing designs. You will be introduced to hooking with Chakra colours and to journaling techniques to unblock creativity.
$90 per workshop (per day) plus HST.
Student Materials: For both days, participants will need rug hooking equipment (hook, scissors, frame or hoop), a notebook or journal, linen or other backing and a variety of fabrics and yarns that you love to hook with.
The design can be as small as 8" x 8" if this is your first time taking the Healing Image workshop, or as large as you like if you have previously designed a Healing Image with Meryl.

She shares practical steps to unblock creativity, work through difficult situations and find meaning in life again.
