    For manual dexterity, would knitting on straight and circular kneedles be enough. What if I crochet as well, I hear that's more impressive. Obviously, if I get to the interview stage, I should bring something I've made already like a scarf or a hat etc.

    My science teacher said his granny could knit but he wouldn't trust her near his teeth.

    I hear embroidery is even more impressive - I've seen it done and know some one who can teach me. Should I do all to cover my back, if only I'd learnt to play a musical instrument when I was younger.

    Should I mention all in my personal statement?

    your science teacher is funny.... learn embroidery as well, it's not difficult but takes a lot of time and patience. I made these elaborate cards which included cutting out little fiddly shapes, creating collage out of fabric.... and never even got to show it in my interview! as long as you can demonstrate that you actually enjoy doing manual stuff then you will be ok.

    I think my science teacher was concerned that I used up too many lines on my personal statement referring to manual dexterity.

    Should I just have a couple of lines mentioning it?

    you have to state somehow that aside from academic skills you have to be skillful with your hands and then mention the sort of stuff you do...me thinks.
