About this Event

The Knitting Clan at John the Unicorn

CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO COVID

Grab your knitting needles and balls of colour and come along and join us.

Over a few stitches we laugh and natter, learn from each other and enjoy a Tuesday night in Peckham, upstairs at John the Unicorn.

A fun and friendly group of knitters and crochet enthusiasts who love a good project and have been meeting every few weeks for the past few years. We are an inclusive club and open to all.

Our Knitting Clan is always free, but we kindly ask you to buy a drink from the great selection at the bar.

Don't know how to knit?

No problem! We can help you get started and will have some knitting needles and yarn we can sell you on the night.

About your hosts James McIntosh & Dr Thomas

The Knitting Clan is hosted by James McIntosh, a world award winning knitting author who lives in Peckham with his partner Dr Thomas. James, a celebrated food writer and TV chef (in China) spent his life flying between Peckham and Peking. Then one day, he could not move his leg in the bed, after a dignosis of a 'moderately severe depressive eppisode', James spent a year in bed crippled by fear, anxiety, depression and panic attacks. It was at this point that James taught himself to knit.

Dr Thomas is James' other half, and he's the only Consultant Physician that we know of that uses mindfulness in the NHS to treat chronic illness and pain. James found that he could not meditate, that his head was too busy. But knitting worked - which we call knititation® and was published in their award winnign book - Knit and Nibble.
