About Chef Stevie

Hi! I'm Chef Stevie. I’m a graduate of Walnut Hill College, one of Philadelphia's oldest Culinary arts schools. I loved my classes because every day was a new opportunity to see, touch and learn something new.

I've loved cooking for others and teaching the art of cooking is one of my passions. Even after 20 years, I still get excited about exploring different cuisines. My classes are fun and informative. My students tell me that my zest for cooking is contagious and that they find themselves being more creative in other aspects of their life. I also enjoy growing my own food, raising chickens and enjoying nature.

I've taught community cooking demos, groups and individual classes. I also enjoy cooking for small intimate gatherings. I’ve even had the pleasure of learning Molecular Gastronomy cooking. Check out Wikipedia if you are i

nterested in learning more about Molecular Cuisine.

GROUP classes are available as well as some limited travel. Let’s get cooking! Cheers

Anne-Louise has a very intuitive approach to teaching which matched my kinesthetic learning style. She helped me learn how to use my machine and I will work on a project so she can help answer any questions at the next lesson. We were definitely a fit. Thanks.

My daughter had her first session with Tuwanda yesterday and had an awesome session! Tuwanda is very personable and they clicked very quickly. After they reviewed what my daughter had done in the past they began a new project. My daughter is very excited for her future sessions! Tuwanda was great!

About Janet

Are looking to increase calm energy? Learn something new? Heal an issue and feel better? Look better?

Hello there. My experience with the QiGong is one of beginning to pass on the great training I have had. Not only in the QiGong. It is the strength and beauty of movement in other martial arts, yoga, nature hikes.

*Please note...I am in the process of getting another video intro by me. Signing up for a series of lessons though will most likely answer all questions though. Healing movement...questions answered at a rate of a couple a week...additional material provided if you you would like.

My background with the arts, holistic practitioning, home education based on waldorf model, and even clothing design and making enhance the interaction we have.

Bringing forth from past experiences to you. This movement helps with weight i

ssues, actively helps eliminate back issues, and can help to eliminate other physical issues.

I look forward to working with you. In a way that you can express to me as well any goals further than an authentic QiGong practice to start.

Sincerely,
Janet

I've been sewing my entire life and while I'm new to teaching in a formal setting I've been helping my friends and classmates with sewing since I was in high school. I can teach you basics like how to sew a button and we can work our way up to sewing an outfit.

I can teach you: building (sewing a item of clothing from scratch), altering, tailoring, repairing, embroidery, beading, prop making, hand stitching, machine stitching, how to use a serger, how to read and use patterns, how to plan a project, how to draft a basic pattern, beginner upholstery, and what I call "make it work" sewing tricks for when you don't have fancy equipment or supplies.

If you have a specific project (I'm looking at you, cosplayers and diy Halloween enthusiasts) or if you want to learn a skill that you will use for the rest of your life. I can help.

About Kathren

I'm a grad student at George Washington University who just moved to the DC area from Chicago, and I'm originally from Texas.

I'm a maker who specializes in sewing but I dabble in many other media. I learned everything I know by choosing a project and learning what I needed to to complete that project in a way that I was satisfied with. I have very high expectations of myself so I'd say I am pretty good at what I do and proud of the work I have done. I've also made a lot of mistakes so I know how to help people work through problems.

I'm a massive nerd who loves helping other nerds realize their nerdy dreams so let me help you!

About Kiri

I'm an artist and avid crafter. I enjoy sketching, sewing, crochet, painting, embroidery, and hand dyeing. I recently launched a Facebook based business called Kiri's Kooky Kreations where I'm selling different things I've made as well as a lot of made-to-order and custom products. I've recently begun dabbling with and loving making cold process soap. I also have a profound passion for ceramics but its expensive and takes up a ton of space.
