Classes I offer

 
Giant knit blanket
Make a gorgeous throw blanket using merino wool roving (wool fiber before it’s spun into yarn). You will learn a “table knitting” technique that doesn’t require knitting needles, plus tips and tricks for working with this giant yarn.
Crochet rope basket
In this introduction to crochet, students use their fingers rather than a crochet hook to stitch around a wood base, then build the sides with a different stitch. Optional leather handles finish the basket.
Beeswax food wraps
Choose from a variety of colorful fabrics and coat them with a layer of melted beeswax to create eco-friendly reusable food wraps.

Cozy wool wreath
Using wool roving and your fingers instead of a crochet hook, you will crochet around a metal ring to create a beautiful holiday wreath. Hang it from a piece of ribbon, or embellish it with your own decorations. 
Shibori indigo dye
Experience the magic of indigo dye as you unfold your dyed pieces and watch them develop. Learn a variety of Shibori folding techniques to create unique patterns.
