Location: Heartwood Hub 404 McArthur Avenue
Max class size: 10
Instructors: Cindy Carroll + Jen Rosenthal
We are excited to offer this one-day workshop for those who want to explore the therapeutic effects of weighted blankets and make their own. In this beginner course, participants will be lead through the process of making their own weighted lap-blanket. They will be supported in the sewing aspects and Cindy Carroll, autism mom and owner of Poly Pellets Ontario, who will share her experiences and offer tips for parents and caregivers wanting to integrate weighted materials into their children's routine.
Note that the finished product is a lap-blanket with dimensions of 22" x 28". You will learn all the techniques for creating a full sized blanket, but we do not have enough time in class to complete it.
Fabric and poly-pellets for this project are included in the workshop fee.
