About Me

As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 6 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. I have a lot of experience working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children.

I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience.

Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. I charge by the hour, not by the person. You are welcome to share your lessons with others to divide the cost. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable experience as you learn a leisure time activity. I am extremely patient and detail oriented. When you let me know what you would like to learn or make, I will guide you through everything from selecting materials to fine tuning your technique. Take a lesson with me to find out why my students love me.

For creative people and makers, crafting is like going to the gym. You will find great fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment if you set aside time on a regular basis to nurture this very important part of what makes you who you are. Think of me like a personal trainer. I will encourage and inspire you while you develop your skills and express yourself through a variety of physical media.

About Me

Hi, my name is Kelly (or Miss G. as my students call me) and I've been teaching all sorts of lessons in and out of the classroom for the past almost 15 years. I'm a jack-of-all-trades when it comes right down to it, with experience that ranges widely from teaching horseback riding, knitting, beekeeping, and gardening all the way up through being a high school and middle school teacher who has taught English and Earth Science. I love learning and so am always picking up new skills that I'd love to share with you or your child!

PS - I am annually background checked by the school district I teach in as well as by the Girl Scouts and Teach for America, so although I do not have the background check seal on my profile, I can provide proof that I'm thoroughly background checked.

About Me

I'm a Harvard graduate with a Liberal Arts degree. I've been teaching high school and college students since I was a high school student myself, many years ago. Current and prior students have attended the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, Princeton, and other prestigious schools.

All that highbrow stuff aside, I am a low key, fun teacher who helps make the material relatable- it's much more fun to think of Louis XIV as a spoiled Hollywood-style rich kid than as the king of France.

Art History, Knitting, Quilting, Sewing

About Me

Hi there!

My name is Kat and i'm really looking forward to learning something fun with you! I consider myself a wannabe Glass Artist. I am currently working on a dinosaur quilt- completely done out of fused glass screen printed with glass powders.

I did not study Education at school, but for nearly two years i have been teaching glass fusing and basic sewing (ages 5-93) at a great art facility (no longer in business). I have been providing private lessons since September 2014.

I have a BA in Art History from CU Boulder and a Masters in Art Museum and Gallery Studies from Newcastle University. I grew up sewing, learned to knit just over 10 years ago, and got into quilting about 4 years ago (when i got my own machine and could stop borrowing my moms.) My first experience with glass was 6 years ago and I've been hooked ever since!

I consider myself a patient, fun, and encouraging instructor. I like to cater each lesson to your individual desires and ability while being fun and challenging. Sometimes you gotta go back to basics but i try to do so in a way that encourages and exemplifies growth.

I hope to work with you and help you reach your artistic goals, the grander the better!!
