The Kindness Garden
Virtual Craft and Chat
Morning Coffee Afternoon Tea Crafting in Community
Hello, it is lovely to see you.
Creating makes my heart sing and I’d love to encourage you to find your creative sweet spot too.
I believe in the power of creativity for helping support positive mental health and manage the symptoms of depression and anxiety
How can I help?
Here at The Kindness Garden I host online Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea craft and chat sessions on social media and regular Crafting in Community Zoom sessions.
Why not join me? I also share my wandering in my real garden with my cat, Monty and a whole range of things
I believe a little kindness goes a long way and we all deserve kindness. It is easier to be kind to others than it is to ourselves. At Kindness Garden you will find all the support and encouragement you need to learn to be kinder to yourself
Crafting has been my constant for many years now. I believe creativity can help support positive mental health. I am a passionate multi-crafter and lover of all things wool and fabric. I spin on a drop spindle, crochet, make some of my own clothes and create using English Paper Pieced Patchwork. I am somewhat of a womble, collecting fabric, buttons and other treasures. I enjoy experimenting and creating with them. I positively encouarge people to be creative themselves too.
Coming soon is my Etsy shop, selling hand crafted shawls filled with love and other treasures as they are created. Watch this space for more details.
Ten Minute Tales
Participating in the story studio Facebook group run by Emma Collier from The Yes&Story has encouraged me to start writing creatively for the first time since I was in my late teens.
I will share these seeds of creativity as part of the growth of The Kindness Garden. Each short tale is the product of ten minutes of timed writing. The inspiration will come from a phrase or moment.
You will find these on my social media pages and on my blog page (coming soon). I would also love to know your story, and welcome you to share your writing experiences too.
