Apart from the sheer enjoyment of using our hands to create something new, crafting helps us to connect with who we are. Mindful Crafting explores our relationship with our creativity and self-expression, and reveals how the act of making is the beautiful epitome of conscious living. Sarah Samuel casts fresh light on how the basic human need to create is often forgotten as mass-consumerism grows, and how we can all still find our unique path, craft and our own means of individual, joyful self-expression. Through personal anecdote and expert insight, this book unearths the true value of craft, and how we can meet our soul’s yearning to be creative and open ourselves up to infinite possibilities.
