Psych and health team

 By accepting this skein of yarn, you will be challenged to create an artwork in consideration of the plight & wellbeing of an OTHER (a friend in need, a DREAMER student, a parent who is ill etc) with the goal of giving your artwork to this OTHER.

 It is hoped that as you work on the artwork, you yourself will:

  • Slow down
  • Take time away from electronic stimulation
  • Spend time with others in conversation and interaction while you work
  • Develop the capacity to be alone should you choose to work on your own
  • Discover your ability to use your hands to create something beautiful
  • Be curious about the OTHER in the community

More information about upcoming workshops will be provided.
