Amara Yoga & Arts is pleased to announce Knitting Hats and Scarves — the third in a new
series of Corks and Creation workshops. Corks and Creation is a monthly art-making
workshop for adults designed to cultivate relaxation, creativity and fun. Participants will
get to bring their own wine of choice, spend time with friends and exercise their
imaginations to create one of a kind art pieces.

Join us for an evening of warm fuzzy delight as we knit away the night. For the
November corks and creation we will be knitting scarves and hats. Bring a knitting
project you are already working on or start from the beginning (knitting instruction will
be provided) and your favorite bottle of wine. We will have the needles, lots of yarn,
warm tea and always stimulating conversation. Join us and learn a bit about different
kinds of yarn, styles of knitting and enjoy the “good ol’ fashioned sewing circle” stories.

All levels of knitters welcome.

The cost for Corks and Creation is $25 dollars a person — Amara members pay a reduced
fee of $20. There will be a $5 discount for bringing your own needles and yarn.
Individuals should register early, as space is limited. Register in person at Amara or on
Amara’s website

Upcoming workshop — Prayer Flag Garlands (Dec 17).
“This is a good alternative to going out to the bar on Friday nights,” says organizer
Maggie Taylor. “You get to bring your favorite drink, spend time with friends, and go
home with something beautiful that you’ve made.”

“Knitting is very relaxing and meditative. Knitting circles are a great way to socialize while being creatively productive. It’s a fun and satisfying way to spend time, making
something to help keep you or a loved one warm and cozy through the cold winter
season. Creating functional art is satisfying and useful – and knitting is a perfect way to
spend time with friends or alone during a quiet peaceful chilly evening. I teach knitting
by telling a little story that enables kids, and certainly adults to learn the art of knitting
very quickly and easily.” – Kathryn Fitzgerald, Art Director — Amara Yoga & Arts.
