carson demers: Bringing Comfort Back to Knitting: My Ergonomic Journey
By day, Carson Demers is a physical therapist who runs an ergonomics program for a San Francisco Bay Area medical center. Every other moment, he’s knitting, spinning, designing, teaching, writing, or otherwise up to some fiber fun with a watchful eye toward ergonomics. His passion and experience in fiber arts combine with his expertise in physical therapy and ergonomics to create a unique skill set that he eagerly shares with the fiber community at local yarn shops, guilds, and major knitting events across the country. He is a regular contributor to Ply magazine. His aim is to keep us all creating healthfully and comfortably ever after.
At the Guild Meeting on Tuesday, Carson will speak about “Bringing Comfort Back to Knitting: My Ergonomic Journey.” On Wednesday and Thursday, Carson will lead four workshops that combine his enthusiasm for fiber with his expertise in ergonomics.
