The Big Knit
Get ready, get set, KNIT!
Join our mindful textiles leaders, Janet and Alice, to take up your needles and gather your yarns, for this Sunday special, all day knitting event!
As we’ve been exploring in our weekly mindful textiles sessions, knitting can help to create a rhythmic, meditative state of mindfulness, proven to help reduce stress, improve mental health and wellbeing, and boost the production of serotonin.
Through this communal event we hope to demonstrate the beneficial impact of mindful knitting on your own mental wellbeing, whilst also extending that love and care outwards to support those in need in our community, in particular people who are experiencing homelessness.
From 9am until 9pm, we will be knitting to make scarfs, mittens, patchwork blankets and hats to be donated to the wonderfu Reach Out to the Community charity in Chorlton.
No previous knitting experience is needed, as Janet and Alice will be on hand to help and assist. For those who have been knitting for a while, we encourage you to share your skills and tips so that we can all learn from each other too!
Food, hot drinks and juice will be available throughout the day, so just come along and make yourselves comfy!
Full day tickets are £15, or £2 per hour, pay as you knit!
In running this event, we will be raising money to continue funding our weekly mindful textiles sessions dedicated to improving people's mental health and wellbeing.
If you would like to donate any wool, knitting or crotchet needles for us to use at this event, please do get in touch! b3dsYW5kY29jb251dCB8IGdtYWlsICEgY29t
