Needle Felting as a Way to Balance Emotions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 710


Needle felting is the process of creating soft, two- or three-dimensional images by jabbing barbed needles into clouds of colorful wool. It can feel rhythmical, relaxing, and deliciously aggressive. This workshop will introduce needle felting as an art, as well as a therapeutic art modality. Needle felting combines the stimulating, restorative properties of kinesthetic artmaking with the soothing, self-reflective practice of deep focus. As such, it is an intervention that can help people manage symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma, and learn to mindfully re-balance arousal states. Come experience the wonderful world of needle felting!

Eligible for 3.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
