Applying Ergonomic Techniques to Your Knitting
With Carson Demers
Mar 6, 9:00am-12:00pm & 1:30-4:30pm
Looking to improve your knitting’s efficiency, productivity, and even to knit more comfortably? Then this hands-on workshop is for you!
Carson will help you learn to identify common knitter mistakes that slow you down, cause discomfort, and put you at risk for injury. Best of all, you’ll learn how to correct them!
Working in small groups under the watchful eye of the knitter who literally wrote the book on the ergonomics of knitting, you’ll receive direct feedback on your technique.
The class also covers how to identify ergonomic risk through chart analysis – from simple to complex so you can plan for and mitigate problems before you encounter them. You’ll learn basic ergonomic principles and ways to add movement to knitting to avoid stiffness and injuries caused by disuse, including walking while you knit.
This class is appropriate for students who are comfortable with basic knit and purl stitches.
