1. Mindfulness Art & Craft - Fabric & Ribbon Arts
Saturday 15 August 10.30am to 12.30pm
禪心巧藝系列- 花物语工作坊 (15-8-2015， 10.30am-12.30pm)
In this workshop, participants are shown how to make flowers with fabric and ribbons. These little flowers can be used to make hair and fashion accessories, necklaces, brooches, gift boxes and many others. It is believed that the concept upheld in a sitting meditation practice can be incorporated into the crafting process while participants are fully aware of all the steps and enjoy every moment of the creation. At the end of the workshop, all participants will bring home the creations uniquely theirs. This workshop encourages the use of recycled fabric, ribbons, buttons and hair clips. Cost is $20, and all materials are provided.
To register for this workshop, either call Lilian on 0432 647 004 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org by 13 August (Thursday), so materials can be organised accordingly.
此工作坊將會教大家制作各种缎带花藝。并用这些小花再制作成各种髮饰，项链，衣饰，胸针，及小礼盒。 正所谓‘行住坐卧，無不是禪’，除了打坐， 禅修的概念也都可以延伸到我們生活上。 希望参与者可以用一颗禪修的心來享受制作過程及乐趣。工作坊结束后，每個参与者都可以将自己的作品带回家。此工作坊秉持环保概念，將會采用再循环资源，如各种布料，丝带， 小盒子等。
