Ergonomics for Knitters with Carson Demers - A Virtual Workshop - January 23rd from 10:30am to 2:00pm
Saturday, January 23rd from 10:30am to 2:00pm with a 30-minute break from noon to 12:30pm
Ever known a knitter who hasn’t said, “Just one more row”? Me neither! I’ll bet they’ve also complained of aches and pains while knitting. In this class, you’ll learn how knitting effects the “fabric that makes the fabric”- your body, and see how your knitting technique impacts your efficiency and productivity. By completing a Risk of Injury assessment in class you’ll learn how knitting contributes to those aches and pains throughout your body. But more importantly, you’ll learn how to reduce them. A little knowledge and some simple changes can keep you knitting comfortably and safely ever after. Students who’ve taken this class have said that it should be “required learning for all knitters regardless of experience level!” and, “it’s as important as the knit and purl stitches!” This class is taught by a passionate knitter who is also a physical therapist. This class is not an individual knitting assessment.
Learner’s Materials: Students are asked to bring a bath-sized towel, and materials to take notes if they wish to do so.
Class is suitable for all levels of knitting experience.
