Knitting: See One, Do One, Teach One is on view this week, April 3 – April 7, 2017, in the C-U-B-E Gallery on second floor N231.
The phrase ‘See One, Do One, Teach One’ is a method that derives its lineage from western medical practices which implies how one learns a procedure, then conducts the procedure, then teaches another. Knitting is a wonderful way to weave yarn but obtaining this skill does require more practice for some than others. When a student immediately understands the process, they are often willing to deomnstrate to another student who may be struggling with tangled threads. Now it's time to have this group of fabric students teach the knitting process to others in the School of Art.
There has been a resurgence of knitting of late. Perhaps the rhythmic, repetitive motion and relaxation of knitting has the same benefits to mind and body as a meditation session, but additionally one can create something from the process. This repetitive motion also distracts from symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress and is a fun activity with a group or alone. Knitting is easily portable and can be done nearly anywhere.
So grab a pair of needles and lets get started!
