Event description

Description

Neural Knitworks: craft a healthy brain is a collaborative art and science project exploring mind and brain health.

About

Neural Knitworks is based on the principle that yarn craft, with its mental challenges, social connection and mindfulness, helps keep our brains and minds sharp, engaged and healthy.

Join founding artists Pat Pillai and Rita Pearce to make textile neurons in your hands following scientifically informed patterns as you forge new neural pathways in your brains. Hear short talks from brain and mind health experts and neuroscience researchers who will also join the knit-in, giving you a chance to ask questions, share experiences and gain access to expert scientific knowledge about the mind and brain.

Have fun, learn something new and enhance your own brain health in the process!

Contribute your textile creations to our Big Anxiety brain installation.

People of all ages and abilities can participate, no knitting experience is required and there will be easy no-knit patterns to follow in addition to crochet and knitting patterns.
