Event description

Description

We are spending so much time in our lives glued to a screen. Have you ever counted how many hours you spend in front of a screen? I have, it was around 12. 12 hours! Yikes!

In addition to that, we spend endless hours thinking about things, things that are not even going to happen and that makes us remove ourselves from the present and thereby we are unable to enjoy our lives.

If you are looking a way out of that, knitting is a way!

The repetitive motion involved in knitting allows you to focus on the present. Your head is cleared from the negative thoughts and you thereby start practicing mindfullness.

In this workshop you will learn how to knit and how to knit for mindfulness.

What we cover in the workshop:

-how to actually put the yarn on the needles (cast-on)

-how to knit a stitch

-explanation of a pattern and how to read a pattern

-how to finish your knitting (cast-off)

-how knitting is mindfulness and how to practice at home by knitting small projects

What is included:

We will provide the tools you need for knitting such as the knitting needles and yarn to work on your project during the workshop. You will be able to take home the knitting work you do at the workshop. We will also provide a set of instructions to take home and a list of where to purchase yarn for your next project.

Coffees/teas/soft drinks, cakes and sandwiches will be available to purchase at The Olive Tree Wandsworth. Free Wi-fi available.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

To get to 'The Olive Tree Cafe', the nearest tube stop is Tooting Broadway on the Northern Line, from there take bus 44 from stop N towards Victoria and get off at Swaffield Road stop (10 minute bus ride). Alternatively you can walk to the cafe, but bear in mind it is 2.1miles, which may take 30-40 minutes depending how fast you walk!
