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 make a flat round, then build the sides of the basket 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.
