Embroidery Workshop: Stitching Trauma into Resilience

Crystal Sim
14:00 – 16:00

Join us for a two-hour therapeutic embroidery workshop as we reconcile with a part of our past.

This immersive experience will guide participants in using embroidery to process and form new perspectives from unpleasant memories. Prior to the workshop, participants will have to share a chosen image, signifying a specific memory that may be traumatic for them.

All materials will be provided and participants may choose to continue working on their embroidered images in their own time after the workshop.

Facilitated by
