Knitting – ‘Knit One, Give One’
Relax, socialise and learn to knit. You will then create beautiful, handcrafted items for yourself, as well as something to help keep homeless people (and people from disadvantaged situations) warmer this winter.
Enjoy a relaxing knitting course where you will learn the basics of knitting. This is ideal if you are new to knitting or if you wish to refresh your skills. Knitting is said to aid the “relaxation response“, help with hand-eye-co-ordination and fine motor skills, along with a great sense of accomplishment.
It is documented that knitting has the same benefits as meditation; crafts including knitting is also documented that it may alleviate symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression, whilst helping to improve motor functions and slowing down cognitive decline. It is also said to help prevent arthritis and tendinitis. All of this, and you learn a great skill too!
