Class: Healthy Handwork Habits

"Take good care."

Do you have discomfort or numbness in your back, neck, or arms when you knit? Or is your handwork pain-free and you’d like it to stay that way? This course, informed by the Feldenkrais® Method, includes some gentle seated movement activities and a Feldenkrais-inspired yarn experience. You’ll take home a movement sequence to use for a warm-up or as a break during your day.

Please bring: See the 'Supplies and Homework' tab for a list of what to bring to class as well as homework to complete before class.

Maximum: 8 students. $20 (1-session workshop).

  • Saturday 10:30am-12:30pm 3/17 with Marsha Novak

Knitters: Bring a small swatch to class. Perhaps about 30 stitches with worsted-weight yarn on size 7 or 8 needles. Cast on and work about 5 rows in garter stitch; bring swatch in progress, yarn, and needles to class. This is for practicing “more comfortable knitting” in class, not for a future project.

Crocheters: Bring a small swatch to class. Perhaps about 30 chains with worsted-weight yarn on a size G or H hook. Work a few rows in the stitch of your choice; bring swatch in progress, yarn, and hook to class. This is for practicing “more comfortable crocheting” in class, not for a future project.

Stitchers: Bring your current canvas, needle, and some fiber to class.

Everyone: Bring reading glasses if needed.
