Event description

Description

Spread messages of kindness to empower yourself and others who feel socially anxious and not enough. Through the quiet act of yarn bombing & craftivism, we'll be letting others know that we're all in this together and that we're all enough, just as we are.

Take part at your own pace in the
#WeAreEnough Yarn Bombing & Craftivism community project at the Quiet Connections Pool group.


WHAT WILL YOU GAIN FROM THIS PROJECT?

  • Gently try something new and have a go at learning or expanding your creative skills with drop-in knitting & crocheting, cross stitch & embroidery, applique, and pattern designing workshops.
  • Grow confidence through recognising and celebrating your own quiet strengths and qualities as you explore the kind words and empowering designs that you’ll create to share the message that #WeAreEnough
  • Practise mindfulness and self-compassion with the aid of creative activities – perhaps even discovering new ways to self-care!
  • Connect with other like-minded people, practise social abilities, and stretch comfort zones in a safe and supportive place.


You are welcome to join at any of the dates with the opportunity to pick up the activities and learn from one another throughout. Feel free to use the open 'Quiet Time' sessions at the group on the 3rd Thursday of each month (or find some space throughout the Speaking Practise sessions) for additional time to continue on your project.


ABOUT THE QUIET CONNECTIONS GROUP AT POOL

Offering a calm and supportive space for those of us who feel anxious or shy in social situations, or want to feel more accepting of our quieter nature.

We bring like-minded people together in a comfortable space where it's ok to talk and it's ok to be quiet too.

You can gently connect with people of all ages who have similar stories, with no pressure to speak up or join in as all activities are optional. Simply share space with genuinely understanding people who can be there for you if you need someone to talk to.

We also run community art projects and open you-time sessions at the group; be sure to check them out.

WHEN AND WHERE CAN YOU FIND US?

We meet every Thursday morning in the Intergenerational Room, Red River Cafe, Heartlands, Robinson's Shaft, Dudnance Ln, Pool TR15 3QY

Dropping in on the day is fine, and it's helpful for us if you let us know you'll be joining us.

Joining us at the group is FREE; we do kindly ask for donations which are reinvested back into your local group to help keep them running, deliver activities and continue to help us offer support to reduce social anxiety and isolation. Thank you x


CAN I SPEAK TO SOMEONE FIRST BEFORE COMING?

Of course you can, please contact Stacie with any questions, or if you'd like to be connected with someone before joining to ease any anxieties about attending. Email: stacie@quietconnections.co.uk
