BEGINNERS KNIT & CROCHET WORKSHOP WITH CAROL PARKER
SAT 14 JAN 10-12PM & SAT 11 FEB 10-12PM
UNIQUE COTTAGE FARM STUDIOS
ALL AGES WELCOME BUT UNDER 8S ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT PLEASE
Come and learn a new skill in the wonderful environment of the Lincolnshire countryside. Refreshments provided and lots of different techniques to try: extreme knitting and French knitting, finger and body knitting and crochet.
Workshop may be of particular interest to teachers/TAs and Health and Wellbeing workers. Knitting encourages coordination, develops concentration span, is great for social engagement, is a therapeutic ‘relaxer’ and is said to delay the onset of dementia. All this and you can create something too!!!
Carol is a freelance artist with over 15 years’ experience of facilitating workshops with all ages and abilities. She was lead artist on knit2getherlincs, a Cultural Olympiad 2012 project where a 200mtr knitted Olympic track was created by working with hard to reach, community groups and schools in Lincolnshire (for images and more info see knit2getherlincs.wordpress.com).
Look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
