Cordage Making Workshop - Weaving Wisdom into Modern Threads - The Poly Falmouth 19 January & 16 Feb 2024

Please join us for a cordage making workshop Friday 19 January and February 16 for many benefits:

  1. Mindfulness and Stress Reduction:

    • Engaging in cordage making promotes mindfulness by requiring focus and concentration.
    • The hands-on activity helps individuals be fully present in the moment, reducing stress and promoting relaxation.
  2. Tactile Stimulation:

    • The tactile experience of working with natural fibers provides a sensory-rich break from digital screens.
    • This hands-on engagement can be particularly beneficial for those looking to disconnect from the digital world and enjoy a more tangible, physical experience.
  3. Connection with Nature:

    • Cordage making with natural materials fosters a connection with nature.
    • This connection contributes to a sense of well-being and environmental awareness, especially important in urban settings where nature may feel distant.
  4. Creative Expression:

    • Cordage making allows for creative expression through the selection of materials, patterns, and designs.
    • Creative activities positively impact mental well-being and provide an outlet for self-expression.
  5. Skill Development:

    • Learning a new skill, such as cordage making, boosts confidence and a sense of accomplishment.
    • Acquiring tangible results from the process enhances the empowerment associated with skill development.
  6. Social Interaction:

    • Workshops offer a structured environment for socialization and community building.
    • Participants can share experiences, exchange ideas, and collaborate, contributing to positive mental health through social interaction.
  7. Slow Down in a Fast-Paced World:

    • Cordage making encourages a slow and deliberate process.
    • In a culture that values speed, this intentional activity prompts individuals to appreciate the process, embrace a more relaxed pace, and counterbalance the fast-paced nature of modern life.

To participate in this enriching experience, individuals can book via The Poly booking office or by calling them at 01326 319461. This workshop not only provides a hands-on skill-building opportunity but also offers a holistic approach to well-being through mindfulness, creativity, and connection with nature.
