Did you know that knitting can reduce depression and anxiety, boost feelings of wellbeing and help you to cope with pain?  These are just a few of the many benefits of this wonderful activity, so come along and have some creative fun and learn the basics of knitting on this beginners workshop.

During this practical, one-off taster session delivered by our partners at Kirklees Success Centre we will learn how to cast on and off, as well as learning the basic knit and purl stitches. Join us and meet others who are also starting their knitting journey!  Yarn and knitting needles will be provided.

Please be aware that due to funding from Kirklees Success Centre, priority will be given to learners living in Kirklees. 

For those who would like to develop their skills further then please book on our five week ‘Knitting for Wellbeing’ course starting in November 2022.  Click here for details: Knitting for Wellbeing – Calderdale and Kirklees Recovery College (calderdalekirkleesrc.nhs.uk)
