Event Details

Take a break from the office for an hour.

Bring along your knitting, macramé, stitching, crochet, basket making or other yarn craft project…and maybe a friend or two!

Join like-minded people for a relaxing, lunchtime break - every Wednesday.

Convened by Bridget Kennedy, contemporary jewellery and installation artist, and occasional basket maker.

Background

Research shows knitting and yarn craft, like other meditative activities, can “activate areas of the brain that are good for generating a sense of calm, (and contribute to) improved emotional processing and better decision making”.

A recent study conducted out of Cardiff University in the United Kingdom also found knitting has significant psychological and social benefits. In a survey of 3,545 knitters worldwide, respondents who knitted for relaxation, stress relief and creativity reported higher cognitive functioning, improved social contact and communication with others.

In short, knitting made them happier.
