Event short description
Did you know that knitting has been shown to lower stress levels and blood pressure as much as yoga and meditation? Join Wei Jing Saw, founder of Knitly for a fun, social activity, where learning how to knit is the focus. This workshop integrates stretches and deep breathing to enhance the meditative qualities of knitting. Together with instructors from Knitly, we will learn how to make a cosy cowl. Don't worry, you'll get a kit with everything you need will be sent straight to your door for virtual events! No prior experience is necessary. Just bring yourselves, some crafty ambition, and maybe a little something to sip on while we get our knit on!

Knitly was founded on the conviction of knitting’s unique ability to expand satisfaction, wellness, and sense of community in a workplace setting. Given our overly-stimulated minds, an opportunity to step away from a desk and focus on an activity that is three-dimensional, tactile, and relaxing also allows the mind to wander just enough to return to work refreshed and inspired. A Knitly session will help you ground yourself in the present, share an experience with colleagues, and disconnect for a moment from a hectic day—bonus, you'll also leave with a me-made accessory!
