Venue: Stanton Library, Conference Room
Artist and academic Debra Philips will talk about the therapeutic benefits that come from participation in knitting groups.
The presentation tells the story of the Stanton Library’s yarn-archist’s recent yarn-storming project and their contribution to the international Wrap with Love project.
The content is based on scholarly and field research and is aligned with emerging research trend and interest in the therapeutic benefits that come from participation in knitting groups. A slide show of photographs that are a visual document of our project will be included in the presentation.
After the presentation there will be refreshments served, and an opportunity for questions and information sharing about joining the knitting group and other creative projects.
