Book Description

In today’s busy world, it can be difficult to slow down and find time for the simple joy of making. Clare Youngs has designed a wide range of beautiful and tempting projects to help you experience the pleasure and satisfaction that creating something with your own hands can bring. The best thing about practising mindfulness through craft is that you have something tangible to show at the end, and you can start small with the coral reef-inspired embroidery hoops, or just by making pompoms and tassels to be added to the edge of a cushion or blanket. You can learn techniques such as block printing, punch needling, shibori dyeing, weaving, macramé and quilting, all of which encourage a mindful approach, and a way to experience a feeling of 'flow'. Make unique things for yourself and your home, using natural materials such as wool, cotton, linen and leather. Clare is a believer in making new things from old, using what you have and adapting old fabrics to counteract a throwaway society, and all her designs have a Scandinavian-inspired, modern aesthetic.
