It’s Time to Celebrate the Amazing Journey of the Weaving a New Story Project.
Mixing and blending textiles, neuroscience, compassion, creativity.
Giving 100% commitment to embody mindfulness and embrace mindlessness as best we can at all times.
Full catastrophe living indeed!
Join psychologist and textiles artist Liz Finegold and Dr Tamara Russell at a mini-workshop at King’s College London to celebrate the Weaving a New Story project. Saturday June 3rd, 10-12 (limited numbers, RSVP via email on the invite below please).
Professionals and anyone interested in the blend of mindfulness, textiles, women’s mental health and creative healing applied within a neurocognitive framework is invited to come and hear about the work.
Two blogs about the project are below. Thank you to Clinical Partners for sponsoring the Pamper Hampers for the mums and a crèche worker (both absolutely vital to the project!). Also a big thank you to the amazing Cocoon Family Support, the King’s students Abi and Faye and all the team at In-Spire.

Weaving a New Story … (for professionals)
Tamara will have copies of her recently launched book #whatismindfulness. This book contains the model that was used to underpin the work in this project.
Weaving a new story: A project investigating how mindful textile work can support mothers with postnatal depression is a collaboration between King’s College London’s Department of Neuroimaging and textile artist Liz Finegold, supported by the Cultural Institute at King’s.
