Giant Knitting With Melanie Porter
This fun, relaxing and creative morning with celebrated designer & maker Melanie Porter is a great way to learn a new skill, connect and share ideas with other Decorcafe members. No previous knitting knowledge is required, all levels of knitters welcome, and even if you are a complete beginner at the end of the session everyone will be confidently knitting, gently guided by Melanie.
WHAT CAN YOU MAKE? Choose between making a giant knit scarf or an incredible blanket whilst learning to cast on, knit, purl and cast off along the way.
WHY KNITTING? It has been proven in scientific studies that knitting and crafting has significant benefits on both physical and mental health. Bilateral use of hands to make different movements stimulates a whole host of brain functions which, in turn, have wonderful health benefits The combination of the colour and texture of the knitting, paired with the rhythmic stitch makes for an immersive pastime where the mind can’t help but be present. Knitting allows the mind to slow down, yet deeply focus on the activity at hand.
