Workshop Wednesdays: Ergonomics

I am really excited about this last minute addition to classes. Carson Demers is a professional physical therapist by day and in his spare time he teaches fabulous classes to knitters and spinners on how to improve their ergonomics. I know from experience that knitting for a long time or sitting at the spinning wheel for too long makes me hurt. These classes are there to help with just that!

The first Happily Ever After: Ergonomics for Knitters is just the class for any level of knitter. Students who’ve taken this class have said that it should be “required learning for all knitters!” and, “it’s as important as the knit and purl stitches!” You can see why I was so excited when Carson said he would teach this class here. This class is definitely filling up fast, so if you are interested make sure to sign up soon!

The second class, Spinning Ergonomics, was a class I specifically asked for. Carson said he taught a class on this a few years ago which he designed with Judith MacKenzie. It sounded perfect to me! I know Spinners have just as much pain as knitters, if not more. So if you are a spinner and you want to spin pain free, make sure to check out this class!
