Shetland Knitting Group
In collaboration with Shetland Arts Trust, we have a monthly Knitting Group, usually on the last Thursday of the month from 2 - 4.30 in the Mareel Upper Bar Cafe.
This group is aimed at all ages and includes people with dementia.
This is an activity based group and aims to assist individuals to regain lost knitting skills and acquire new ones. It is a drop in activity – individuals can bring their own knitting or use wool provided.
The aim is to use the knitted material in a collage for display in Mareel during Dementia Awareness Week, although the group will continue to meet monthly throughout the year.
