Classes

I teach knitting, crochet and other DIY projects, mainly to beginners, but all are welcome. I typically teach small groups of adults, but can also do private lessons or larger groups and team-building events (in person or online via Zoom). Contact me if you’re interested in a class or book on Class Bento
