Knitting Workshop

Knitting has been known for a long as a way to relieve stress and focus the mind. Betsan Corkhill, a physiotherapist, explains: “The rhythmic repetitive movements induce a form of meditation similar to mindfulness – that pleasant state of mind when you’re existing ‘in the moment’, not mulling over the past or fretting about the future”. Knitting also helps calm and focus the mind, whilst developing fine motor skills and understanding of patterns. This is why some teachers use knitting to help children learn to read and write. In this short introductory course, you will learn the basic knitting technique to help you relax and focus in preparation for your exams
