Quiet Day: Creative Hearts (a creative retreat using textiles and stitch)

Leader : Karen Herrick
Dates : Mon 1 Apr 2019
Price : £35.00
Type + Interest :
Description: Join us for an experiential day of exploring quiet, hand stitched prayer where you will be encouraged and supported to draw closer to God through creativity and reflection.

The Bible has much to say about our hearts and the heart of God for His people.  What is it that your heart most desires?  What is it that the Lord requires of our hearts?

Karen will guide you into reflection and encourage prayerful creativity through stitch and the exploration of colourful textiles, textures and threads.  Using an array of layered fabrics, buttons and beads, we will use the heart motif to individually explore that God may want to say to each one of our hearts.  We will use colourful fabrics and textures to pray for ourselves, others, or a situation in the world that weighs on our heart.

The cost of this Quiet Day will include all materials, so you only need to bring yourself.

Karen is a self employed textile artist who explores faith through creativity and stitch, facilitating others to draw closer to God through creativity.  She works in the areas of arts and wellbeing, education and family learning.  An experienced teacher, she has also worked as a children’s and community worker in the Church of England, involved in Fresh Expressions of the Church.  She is also a spiritual director with a passion for creativity, colour and contemplative prayer and works with the New Wine Arts Team, Spring Harvest and WORTH charity, as well as providing creative quiet days and retreats.  She writes a blog, “Sanctuary in Stitch”, journaling her spiritual journey in stitch:  https://www.harlequinarts.co.uk/index.php/blog/sanctuary-in-stitch
