Crochet is a great activity that settles your mind and is relaxing too. Crochet and the repetitive movements help the brain make more serotonin, which helps to decrease feelings of depression.
We will learn how to crochet and how to practice mindfulness, we will work on making a crochet mandala.
This is a special project for me, as we will make the mandala that is designed by Dutch crocheter Marinke who passed away because of her depression. I made the mandala (in the profile picture) last year for a project in the USA to raise awareness for depression.
This is a 4 week course and I hope to repeat it every term to enable you to work on more crochet projects.
On Tuesday evening at the Tawa Community Centre, $95, starts 18 October and includes materials and take home crochethook.
Looking forward to see you!
