Bracelets for friendship

As a Mindful May activity Art teacher Nadia’s was simple and perfect – to give students and staff a chance to step away from everyday concerns for a short time and create something beautiful.

Tables in the library were strewn with colourful beads and thread. The challenge was to make a friendship bracelet. There was silence, conversation and laughter at the table. Some made a bracelet for themselves and others for family, friends and even a ‘future wife’.

The results were stunning and the experience mindful.
