According to Psychology Today, “purposeful hand use enhances well-being in a technologically saturated culture.” Hand activities like knitting, cooking, woodworking, gardening, and the like are all scientifically proven to decrease stress, relieve anxiety, and help depression.

It’s a different feeling altogether when what you do has a purpose, and far from the daily routine you deal with every day (tending to emails, typing, scrolling through your phone). So let me ask you: When was the last time you created something with your hands?

This Saturday, A-11: artelano11 is having a pop-up cafe and workshop series that will ignite your craftiness and creativity once again. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., a screen printing workshop will be led by HOCUS Manila, followed by furoshiki fabric wrapping with Yana Ofrasio at 4:30 p.m.
