Ergonomics for Knitters with Carson Demers
Ever know 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. 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 happily 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.
Bring any knitting project to work on in class. You will learn to analyze your knitting for ergonomic risk factors.
