Knitting workshops

In the mid 1900s, knitting workshops were a common place of work for blind and partially sighted women and RLSB ran one such workshop in its base in Kilburn.

Here are some photographs from the workshop taken in the 1960s, which show women at work and the products that they made, including a knitted dress, jumper and skirt.
