After a busy and sucessful open studio, we are now busily preparing for the celebratory event for the end of our 'Knitting Communities Together' project. This project involved us teaching staff, who support adults with learning disabilities, how to knit, crochet and weave.
skills were then used to enhance the workplace environment and to create
sensory experiences, including a 10 foot long sensory wall/blanket.
Another part of this project looked at the benefits of interacting with
the local community. A number of items such as a bunting and blankets
have been made and will be distributed to local community groups.
Knitting Guerillas of Blighty who helped us make the sensory wall/blanket, Leanne Robinson, Service Development Coordinator, staff and service users who benefited from participation and the Leicester City Council Charnwood Community ward who funded this project.
