Seniors and PRs aged 50 years and above can look forward to attending short courses and bite-sized courses that are exam free. For courses run by community-based organisations, the final fee payable – for both Singaporean and Permanent Resident seniors – takes into account the support given by the government to community-based organisations to develop and offer the short courses.

Objective The current COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted norms, and knitting is a beneficial activity for mental health. Helps in dealing with depression and anxiety. Repetitive movements of knitting produces calmness and relaxation, thus reducing stress. Knitting is a lifelong skill that participants can use to create beautiful items as gifts for themselves or others. Participants will be able to read patterns and create delightful items after the sessions.
Description This course is for participants who can easily follow most patterns, read knitting patterns, and know advanced stitches and techniques for neater results.  One of the highlights of the course is knotting in the round and magic loop knitting.  At this level, participants will also learn to do brioche, lace and complex cable knitting, and other advanced techniques to create different textures.  Fixing mistakes and alternative bind-off methods will be included at this level.
