Learn to knit basics
Hand Made Washcloths - In this beginners class Karen Jacobson will teach you how to cast on, knit, yarn over and bind off to create a homemade wash cloth. You bring yarn (4 1/2 oz. skein of sugar and cream 100% Cotton yarn) and needles (pair size 7 or 8, short ones are easier to work with) and you leave with the pattern and the know how to begin your own projects. This pattern can be easily converted to make other items, from table runners to scarves.
Hand Made Slippers and Baby Booties - Learn to knit and purl. In this more advanced class Karen Jacobson will review knitting basics (cast on, knit, bind off) and will teach you how to purl and make pom-poms to create a pair of homemade baby booties. You bring yarn (2 oz skein 4 ply worsted weight Cotton yarn) and needles (pair 10 1/2) and you leave with the pattern and the know how to begin making your own slippers. This pattern can be easily converted to make adult size slippers as well.

Hello there, I’ve been studying astrology for over 8 years. I teach using correspondences with tarot, crystals and herbs. I break it down using stories and anecdotes for more fun and better retention.
Hello, my name is Mallory and astrology is my passion! It’s my favorite thing to talk about, read about, and teach. I learn everything best through stories and correlations, so that is how I teach! My Mercury is in Virgo, so I communicate in detail, and do my best to do so in an organized way.

I will teach you how to make video games! I teach the following programs:
Scratch 2.0 - a great program to learn for beginners or children 8 and up! Put together code "blocks" like puzzle pieces to program your game!
Stencyl - For making games without typing code! Similar to Scratch where blocks of code are used, but much more powerful!
Unity - For making 2D and 3D games. We will use a little bit of C# language to code the games!
Game Art - Create game art and animation sprites for your games using Adobe Animate and Adobe Photoshop!
Children or Adults can take any of these programs. I recommend 8+ years for Scratch and 10+ years for Unity. 12+ years to really get into more actual c# coding.

Interested in trying your hand at jewelry design? Before you begin, consider the following 5 questions, as outlined by Nashville jewelry designer and teacher Warren F... Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair? She allowed all this uncertainty to affect her design work – she had difficulty finishing pieces she was working on, starting new projects, and getting …
