Common Threads – Woven through Community

HANDS ON WORKSHOP

Did you know this interesting fact about how felt originated? One commonly told story is that during the Middle Ages, men lined their sandals with wool for comfort. Over time, the fibres in the wool became interlocked and felted as a result of the moisture, warmth and recurring pressure from being walked on.

Have you ever wanted to learn this ancient craft, but perhaps by making something other than liners for sandals??!!

Kim Gordon Lovely Little Felt PotsA great place to start learning this skill is by creating a lovely little felt pot which will look absolutely stunning sitting on your favourite piece of furniture or window ledge. It’s a wonderful way to learn the ancient art of felting and you will walk away with a completed piece which will amaze you … and your family and friends.

This is a fun and intimate workshop with a maximum of 8 participants where you will receive focused attention to learn the skills required to felt beautiful little pieces with plenty of colour choices available.

By layering silk threads, fine wool yarns and colourful gauze into gorgeous patterns, you will find your creative flow and connect to your heart through the process of felting.

Layer on the wool and after smoothing out your unique piece and working on it, you finally get to see your patterns unveiled in your very own lovely little felt pot!
It is a lovely unfolding and a truly nourishing workshop.

Kim Gordon, who lives locally in the Perth Hills, first learned to felt about 10 years ago and fell in love with it. Ever since she was a young girl she loved the fibres of different fabrics which she reflects may have come from her mother and grandmother teaching her how to knit and crochet using many different wools and cotton.

Over the years Kim has developed a love for natural fabrics and has mostly felted as a much-loved interest. Kim has also participated in many workshops with well-known Australian and International felters giving her a variety of skills to share.

Kim Gordon joins the Common Threads Woven Through Community Team

Kim has been part of the Common Threads Woven Through Community team since its inception in 2018.

Her motto for felting is ‘From Fibre to Fabulous’… “To start with tiny and delicate fibres and watch them turn into a strong and durable piece of fabric or a delicate art work is amazing” says Kim.

Common Threads – Woven through Community

HANDS ON WORKSHOP

Do you have a wardrobe overflowing with pairs of jeans which are either too tight, too big, too flared, too straight? Or maybe you’ve come to a stage in your life when tapping into your innate creativity is calling you?

Sometimes we can have an emotional attachment to throwing out our jeans as it feels like we’re rejecting a dear old friend.

Repurpose Your Much-Loved Denim

Instead of taking the jeans along to your local op shop, why not put your creativity and your sewing skills to good use and make a funky denim over-the-shoulder bag? And, once you’ve created one bag and the compliments start to fly in, you could make them for family and friends for birthdays and Christmas as you’ll be given a take home pattern and instructions.

Denim is such a tough, resistant fabric that it’s great for repurposing and in this workshop, Jasmin will show you how, using your sewing machine, to recycle your old jeans into a handy over-the-shoulder denim bag and you can create your very own style!

Jasmin Maddox’s connection with denim, natural dyeing and used fabric evolved from a young age where growing up on a self-sufficient farm and the need for hard wearing fabrics was a must.

Fast forward 25 years later and the realisation that the years of dedication and hard work to achieve success in the corporate world no longer held the value it once did and with the arrival of her son a change of mindset and self was put into motion.

Using recycled materials like denim, pallets and driftwood provides the opportunity for each piece to be truly unique and to Jasmin, and her home-based business, represents that the opportunity to facilitate a change of mindset, repurposing and conscious buying for the local community.

Currently live in the Perth Hills, Karla loves all things animals, sustainability and spirituality.

So much so, in 2010 she quit her corporate job to intuitively travel Australia to learn about using camels as a sustainable form of transportation.

Karla grew up thinking nothing about what chemicals she put onto or into her body, ate packaged foods, thought nothing about her personal environmental footprint and lived a blissfully ignorant life.

Karla says – “I have now dedicated my life to working with the Earth to find, share and inspire solutions for living in better harmony, returning balance and respect. And I believe this shouldn’t mean going without”.

The Wisdom of Life – Ayurveda @ The Sound Temple

Contribution $90  – This is a ticketed event, no door sales available

A Day of Ayurveda – Practice and Theory

Winter is the perfect time to take a sneak peek at our Lifestyle and explore the aspects of Nourishment. Meta joins us to bring her wealth of knowledge to us through ‘A Day of Ayurveda’ with an inspiring day of yoga, breathing, meditation and some cooking.

Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.

More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realising their full human potential.

Health is fostered through the informed interaction of the individual with their diet, mental process, lifestyle and environment. Ayurveda teaches us how to sustain what is inborn: health in the individual, in society and for the planet. It enhances our connection to nature, the five elements and the vastness of life.

With a variety of experiential practices, you will have a platform to learn why by doing.

During the day you will have the opportunity to:

  • Explore Lifestyle with yoga asanas, breathing, meditation, chanting and partial self-massage
  • Explore Nourishment where you will prepare vegetable khichuri for lunch
  • Explore and understand the Basic Concepts of Ayurveda
  • Explore Mental Processes followed by Question and Answer time

Meta Doherty is an IYTA (Australia) Yoga Teacher, Ayurveda Lifestyle Consultant and author of two books – Sattwa Café and Ayurvedic Forever Wellbeing, A Treasury of Holistic Recommendations. Over the past 20 years, Meta has lived and celebrated the exquisite nature of these traditional teachings, which are applicable to everyone.

Start: 10:00 am, arrive from 9:45am

A Day of Ayurveda – Practice and Theory

As we move into the warmer months of the year it is the perfect time to embrace Diet and Lifestyle recommendations and explore The Great Elements.

Meta joins us to bring her wealth of knowledge to us through ‘A Day of Ayurveda’ with a day of yoga, breathing, meditation cooking and concepts.
Exploration will be around the Intelligence, internally and externally, of the three more active elements:

ﻍ Air
ﻍ Fire
ﻍ Water

If you have attended any of our Ayurveda events, or if you are a first-timer, you are invited to join us and develop your understanding of the biological intelligence within us known as ‘Dosha-s’.

Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.

More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realising their full human potential.

Ayurveda teaches us how to sustain what is inborn: health in the individual, in society and for the planet. It enhances our connection to nature, the five elements and the vastness of life. Ayurveda recognises the elements in the environment as the same elements activating our bodies and minds.

With a variety of experiential practices, you will have first-hand knowledge of why – by doing.

During this nourishing day we will:

  • Explore yoga, breathing and meditation in three separate forms, to understand how to balance our air element, fire element and water element
  • Cook three different recipes for lunch as part of the experiential understanding of the elements and the dosha-s
  • Become familiar with the signatures of the elements so as to maintain wellness
  • Gain a deeper feel for the concept of the Dosha-s
  • Explore and share by way of Question and Answer time
