Description

Mindful Thoughts for Makers explores how the making process can be used as a tool for meditation, and not just a means to an end.

Part of the Mindful Thoughts series, this lovingly illustrated little book muses on all aspects of making, including:

Motivation
Experimenting
Making mistakes
Monotony
Perfectionism
The making community
The environment
. . . and many more

Making can be much more than a business or hobby, it can be a spiritually enriching activity, slowing us down and connecting our hands to our heart. Textile artist Ellie Beck reveals, through 25 focused reflections, why creating with our hands is uplifting, rewarding and soothing for the mind, body and soul. This book offers meaningful insights to all makers from artists and bakers to tailors and woodworkers - the list is endless.
