Teen Makerspace: Teen Knitting Demo!

Teen Makerspace is an ongoing Tower Road program series teaching you about all forms of science and technology. This week, we’re doing finger knitting!


Knitting is a technique for making clothes that is thousands of years old; the first knitting projects in the world come from the 300s in Egypt and the 300s in Peru. Knitting adheres to mathematical and engineering principles, using patterns and interwoven fibers to make strong, versatile fabric. In our Makerspace, we will talk about some of the history and practical applications of knitting, and learn how you can knit, with just your hand and some yarn! Yarn will be provided, so just remember to bring your hands, and join us at 2:30 on Saturday at the Tower Road Library!
