Ergonomic Knitting Workshops with Carson Demers
Sunday, April 29

These workshops will change your life! By day, Carson is a physical therapist who operates an award-winning ergonomics program for a San Francisco medical center. Every other moment he's knitting, spinning, designing, teaching, or otherwise up to some fiber fun - always with a watchful eye toward ergonomics.

Knitting Happily Ever After • 10 am – 1 pm
In this class, you’ll learn how knitting effects the “fabric that makes the fabric”- your body.  By completing a Risk of Injury assessment in class 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!”

Swatchbuckling  2 – 5 pm

Avast ye mateys! Let’s bring improved ergonomics to life in your knitting technique. We’ll swatch to improve your posture, comfort, and efficiency.  We’ll examine yarn tensioning techniques, and all phases of stitch creation first with simple then more challenging swatches and stitches. We’ll also look at ways to add movement to knitting to avoid stiffness and injuries caused by disuse. Class is appropriate for students who are comfortable with basic knit purl stitches. Swatches of basic cable and lace patterns are also made in class. Stitch patterns are provided in both charted and written formats.

Level: Beginner. $75 per workshop, or $125 for both, plus supplies.
