World Wide Knit in Public Day

World Wide Knit in Public Day

in Events July 4, 2016

Members of our Conversations in the Crafternoon group were involved in co-ordinating an event for World Wide Knit in Public Day.

While knitting and crocheting in the sunshine at Stevenston Cross – some of them with a 9 foot long crochet hook, they had the opportunity to engage in conversation about how engaging in a craft activity can have a positive effect on your wellbeing. Members of the public were encouraged to take part in the conversation and craft and to add their views to the Speaking Willow.

Our thanks are due to everyone who helped make the event a success, including the weightlifters from Stevenston who made sure we could safely lift the crochet hook.

Have a look at our video which has pictures from the event.
