Drop-in Craft: Carving Out Some Mindful Time

1 Apr | 3 sessions: 12pm – 1pm, 1.30pm – 2.30pm, 3pm – 4pm
Glass Atrium, Level 2 | $15 per pax

Doing a lot isn’t always better; sometimes, less is more when you give yourself the time and space to work on it. In this drop-in craft activity, learn how to carve your very own geometric-patterned rubber stamp with humble tools, and decorate a pouch with it.

Through intentional and small actions, you will create a simple pattern that multiplies into a beautiful print when stamped.

For ages 13 and up only. Each participant will bring home a hand-carved rubber stamp and a printed pouch. Register at mindfulmuseum-carvingtime.peatix.com.
