Our 3D Printing Club meets via Zoom every Tuesday.
During the 1st lockdown they worked hard creating face shields and surgical mask straps.
They have experimented making desktop logos, straw holders for drinks and phone holders as well as a 'Mood Tree' and 3D printed landscapes and mazes.
NMC Mindfulness is delivered by Kay who started practicing mindfulness several years ago through the NeuroMuscular Centre. Having found it a very powerful tool to help support her own mental wellbeing, she decided to share some of the things she has learnt.
Kay has delivered live Mindfulness sessions (both on zoom and at NMC) and has a Soundcloud channel with a number of short recorded mindfulness meditations for you to practice in your own time. These meditations are updated regularly.
We also have an NMC Mindfulness facebook group
