About Clan Knitcraft
Clan Knitcraft aim to provide modern & fun knitting tuition in the Uddingston & Bothwell community. We truly believe that knitting can be a welcome antidote to the stresses of everyday life. A chance to get together with like-minded people to relax, chat & create!

Classes run during terms times in blocks. Please contact Rosie for exact dates & cost. It costs £6pw or a discounted price for payment of the block in full.
For brand new kids there is also a one-off charge of £5 which covers knitting needles, a knitting bag and a folder for special patterns & instruction sheets.
Knitting is both therapeutic and creative for adults and children. The benefits include:-
Brain training - the physical movement of knitting, crossing the mid-line of the body works the brain very hard & encourages the left & ride sides of the brain to work better together. Potentially very good for children with dyslexic type difficulties.
Social & great for shy kids to make friends.
Great for improving fine motor skills and for practising maths.
It is calming and relaxing but at the same time encouraging children to be creative & use their imagination.
It builds confidence as the skill is learned and success with each fun, finished project.
