Mindful Art Thursdays
If you would like to experience the connection between mindfulness and art then join us on Thursdays 3.30pm-4.30pm for our Mindful Art drop-ins.
These sessions will blend mindful practices with art making, to help you take the time out of your busy day to just stop, notice and create.
No previous art or mindfulness experience is needed, just come and have a play!
Our Mindful Textiles sessions offers simple textile based craft activities to give you the chance to unwind and create some fun pieces to take home! Mondays 7-8pm.
Activities will vary each session and will include embroidery, simple knitting, pom pom making, phone cases, patchwork quilt making and much more!
Supplies will be provided but feel free to bring along your own fabrics, wool, threads, or any other materials that you would like to work with!

Colour of Yoga
These workshops will explore the link between yoga and colour through the medium of paint. We will begin by practicing asana and pranayama, then yoga nidra and move onto painting as it relates to the specific focus of each workshop which will vary in each session. The workshops promise to be a fun exploration with various contributors. These are all donation only workshops. “Give what you can. Take what you need.” All donations kindly received are to go to ‘Reach Out to The Community’, a food and shelter charity based in Chorlton. Vegan food will be shared.

Stop. Notice. Create. At the LUBAINA HIMID: HARD TIMES Preston Harris Museum and Art Gallery
Join us to Stop. Notice. Create. Adding a creative mindful pause to your day.
Stop to see, touch and feel the mixed media artwork in the LUBAINA HIMID: HARD TIMES exhibition.
Notice the contact of your feet on the floor as you move around the gallery space. Notice any thoughts, feelings and responses to the artwork that come to mind. Notice what you feel in your body.
Create your own piece of mindful art to take home. Inspired by the ‘Inside the Invisible, 2002’ art work.
You don’t need to be good at art or have ever meditated before. You just need to be willing to give it a try and see what happens. Join us on a Mindful Art journey, to Stop. Notice. Create.
