Description

Mindful Thoughts for Makers explores how the making process can be used as a tool for meditation, and not just a means to an end.

Part of the Mindful Thoughts series, this lovingly illustrated little book muses on all aspects of making, including:
  • Motivation
  • Experimenting
  • Making mistakes
  • Monotony
  • Perfectionism
  • The making community
  • The environment
  • . . . and many more
Making can be much more than a business or hobby, it can be a spiritually enriching activity, slowing us down, and connecting our hands to our heart. Textile artist Ellie Beck reveals, through 25 focused reflections, why creating with our hands is uplifting, rewarding, and soothing for the mind, body, and soul. This book offers meaningful insights to all makers from artists and bakers to tailors and woodworkers—the list is endless.
