MEDITATION

What meditational value does the act of weaving provide as an act of creation that combines focus and relaxation?   

Often, weavers experience a meditative feeling when weaving. This loom is focused on the repetitive process of weaving in relationship to the mind and body rather than a perfect end product. Community members can signed up for hour-long sessions to weave a rag rug on this floor loom.

 In 2017 we used scrap materials from the Jump Suit project by  Rational Dress Society . We processed the black and white material into strips that were woven by individual participants into meditation mats.
