An in-person class with Carson Demers
Nov 12, 9:00am-12:00pm PST
Learn a little knowledge and some simple changes that can keep you knitting comfortably and safely ever after!
Ever known a knitter who hasn’t said, “Just one more row”? Me neither! I’ll bet they’ve also complained of aches and pains while knitting. In this class, you’ll learn how knitting effects the ‘fabric that makes the fabric’ — your body — and see how your technique impacts your efficiency and productivity.
By completing a Risk of Injury assessment in class, you’ll learn how knitting contributes to those aches and pains throughout your body. But more importantly, you’ll learn how to reduce them. A little knowledge and some simple changes can keep you knitting comfortably and safely ever after.
Students who’ve taken this class have said that it should be “required learning for all knitters regardless of experience level and it’s as important as the knit and purl stitches!”
This class is taught by a passionate knitter who is also a physical therapist.
Note: This class is not an individual knitting assessment.
