Yarning Minds - Neural Knitworks Project

Celebrating Mental Health Month, Yarning Minds is a collaborative project about mind and brain health. Whether you’re a whiz with yarn, or just discovering the joy of craft, now you can crochet wrap, knit or knot - and find out about neuroscience.
Come and yarn with artist, Pat Pillai to create a soft sculpture to be exhibited at Warilla Library. Join this national project, see your work exhibited, and learn about mental health.
