Knititation | James McIntosh and Dr Thomas A Ernst FRCP – SOLD OUT

James McIntosh was a man full of energy and life. Travelling the world as the Global Ambassador for AGA cookers and a presenter on China Food TV. That was until the age of 35 when he was suddenly struck with a severe depressive episode. James could not leave his bedroom for a year. Fear, panic and a darkness consumed him, not least to mention a catatonic physical state. He was a shadow of himself. During this time, James taught himself to knit.

Slowly, one stitch at a time, James was able to regain his health and together with his partner, Dr Thomas Ernst, a Senior Consultant Physician, they researched knitting and wellness.

Come along and hear James and Thomas tell this story of overcoming adversity, the highs and lows, love and laughter as they talk about the story behind their award winning book Knit and Nibble and how James knit himself back together one stitch at a time with what James and Thomas call knititation®

Please note that this is a ticketed event. Tickets are limited and need to be booked in advance.  This is not a seated event.

James will be holding a book signing from 2pm in The Hub on Sunday.
