Jen & Jenny are making their TV debut!

BBC4 Make! Series

BBC4 Make! Series Jen and Jenny knitting

 

At 9pm on April 4th you can watch Jen & Jenny and a group of beginner knitters knit a bobble hat as part of BBC Four’s MAKE! Craft Britain.  The 3-part show will first air on March 21st and explores six different crafts from rug making to jewellery to knitting!  Celebrating all things craft, MAKE! Craft Britain follows ordinary people giving crafting a go under the instruction of influential teachers.

The show echoes Stitch & Story’s love of sharing craft and our ethos of knitting made simple.  Crafting and knitting are accessible to everyone and Jen & Jenny’s episode features people from all walks of life.  Creative fulfilment is so important in today’s society because of the stresses of modern life, and crafting that results in a tangible and useful product can enhance self-esteem.

Knitting has been proven to be beneficial for combatting stress because of its ability to lower heart rate and blood pressure, and reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol.  As April 1st marks the start of Stress Awareness Month there’s no better time to pick up a new craft!

BBC’s website includes lots of great material to accompany each episode including How to Make a Bobble Hat, so if you fancy knitting along tune in to Episode 3 on April 4th! #makecraftbritain
