Knitting for Wellbeing Taster

Kirklees Recovery College, Kirklees Recovery & Wellbeing College, Pathways, Nettleton Rd, Mirfield, WF14 9AQ

Face to Face

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 so why not come along, have some creative fun and learn the basics of knitting on this beginners workshop?

In this practical, one-off taster session we will be learning how to cast on and cast off, as well as learning the basic knit and purl stitches. Join us and meet others who are also starting their knitting journey!

Delivered by our partners at Kirklees Success Centre. Yarn and knitting needles will be provided.

If there’s enough interest, we are hoping to offer a longer knitting course later in the year, allowing you to develop your skills!
