The Consortium of the City of Toledo and the Social Services of the Toledo City Council organize a 'collective meeting' to weave in community in the oratory of San Felipe Neri, a space managed by the Consortium, and in the adjoining Plaza Amador de los Ríos.
It will be this Sunday, June 12, on the occasion of World Knitting Day in public from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Any interested person may participate and each participant must bring their material. The Knitting Group 'Punto Piña' and the Toledo School of Art also collaborate in the activity.
The proposal was born to reinforce the potential of a world heritage city as a therapeutic and social resource, as well as the possibilities it offers us in the work of emotions from the heritage resources offered by a historic but alive city, as reported by the Consortium in press release.
This initiative is part of the 'Weaving emotions' project of the municipal Social Services, with which the institution has collaborated, aimed at working on emotions, generating spaces for emotional well-being and weaving community. In short: make visible the importance of group support.
Within this initiative, a group of participants meets weekly to weave, they meet, chat and develop this activity that in itself has repercussions on their emotional well-being. On this occasion, they will do so in the San Felipe Neri oratory and in the Amador de los Ríos square itself, open to anyone.
And it is that, another of the objectives of the activity is to rescue the art of weaving from oblivion, keep alive one of our traditions and recognize the benefits of this activity that improves brain activity, increases social development, relieves the emotional burden and has repercussions. positively in those who practice it.
