The Meandering Thread: A Contemplative Weaving Retreat

The storyteller is also a spinner or weaver and a story is a thread that meanders through our lives to connect us each to each and to the purpose and meaning that appear like roads we must travel. ~Rebecca Solnit

Throughout history, weaving and the art of storytelling have often gone hand in hand. As groups would gather to spin, dye and weave yarn, personal and collective stories were shared and mythologies were spread. In this workshop, we will explore the art of weaving as a way to tell our own personal and collective stories.

Combining the creative process of tapestry weaving with writing prompts, narrative exploration and group dialogue, we can cultivate a deeper understanding of the structures of our personal and collective narratives, how we make meaning and our place in this big world. No experience is necessary, just an open heart-mind.

Tuition $149 due in full at registration
