Are your children feeling bored over the school holidays?  Don’t know what to do?  Don’t despair!  Bring them to my children’s and young adult’s knitting workshop where they can learn to knit.  Besides learning a pastime and making something unique with their own hands, knitting can help them:

  • with their maths, both basic (counting) and complicated (patterning, multiplication, etc.)
  • improve their fine and gross motor skills
  • to use reasoning and visualisation to make a finished product
  • maintain focus and attention as, once learned, it is calming and repetitive
  • with their problem solving skills
  • improve their self image by learning a new skill

You can read more about the benefits of knitting here, here and here.

At the workshop, we’ll learn:

  • about the history of knitting
  • how to cast on  (the single cast-on method also known as the backwards loop or e-loop method) and cast off
  • knit stitches
  • purl stitches

The workshop is recommended for children from the age of 7+.

Please note that the amount of skills learnt at the workshop depends on the group.  Perhaps we don’t manage to learn them all, and perhaps we learn more :)

The price of the workshop includes materials (set of 4mm knitting needles and a ball of wool).
