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

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.
Online or in-person
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. Available with cotton rope or felted wool rope. 
Online or in-person
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. This quick workshop is great for office groups!
