I began knitting when I was twelve years old; I sat beside my neighbor, Mrs. Turner, and listened to her stories while I watched her wooden straight needles move expertly along, clacking-clacking in counterpoint to the crackling of the wood in the corner stove. Mrs. Turner had a laid back approach to teaching knitting. The point of knitting wasn't simply to produce a useful item: it was to enjoy the process. If you made a mistake, just unmake it and try again. The worst that could happen was you would end up with two sticks and some string.

When you're twelve, life is filled with drama. Knitting was not. It has always been a meditative, nurturing retreat. There have been times in my life when I've knitted more, times when I've knitted less. But the lessons I learned from knitting have served me well over the years: patience, perseverance, and keeping it all in perspective.

I'd love to share this craft with someone else. Come, learn to knit and see what else you might learn ...

About Maureen

I have been knitting for more than 35 years, and was taught by a neighbor when I was 12 years old. I found it fascinating and rewarding to transform something disorganized (a ball of yarn) into something purposeful and beautiful. As I grew up, and my world expanded, I found the world of fiber was

Go at your own pace and have fun are my knitting mottos! I teach continental style knitting and have been teaching beginners to knit for over 5 years. Together we'll experience the excitement that comes when you cast on something new, learn a new stich, or finish a favorite project.

I'm can start with the basics (cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch) or jump straight into helping on a project you have planned (or started and got stuck on? don't worry - it happens to all of us!). There is no limit to the kind or number of projects we can do. I have plenty of project ideas and am always happy to help with your ideas, too.

About Nicole

My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 11 years old, and after taking a few years off I picked up the hobby again in my 20s. Now in my 30s I am an avid knitter - there are always several projects on my needles (I need one I can travel with, one I can do while watching TV, and usually one I'm m

JP was a wonderful teacher. He was able to pinpoint areas where I needed to improve. He provided practice exercises and carefully walked me through them. JP was easy to learn from. I appreciated his insights and tips for helping me improve. I look forward to practicing and getting better at the game!
Ken B.
JP is patient and knowledgeable. We did family lessons and he was able to teach each of us based on our level of understanding so that we all got something out of it. We will use him again!
Mike
When things click between instructor and student learning becomes a lot easier. I went into my first lesson with an open mind, and I was not disappointed. What JP explained to me had as much to do with his choice of words as it did with the credibility of his statements. We covered a lot of basics which I already knew, but how he explained them was in terms that I hadn't thought about. This prompted me to slow down and put more effort/concentration into each shot.

Will teach hand-building techniques from simple coil, slab and pinch methods to human bust sculpture. I do not currently have a potters wheel to teach throwing on a wheel, so only the aforementioned hand-building techniques would be taught.

I've been practicing origami for over 20 years, and now I teach students of all ages and skill levels. I've also been a theatre educator for nearly a decade and I love empowering the inner artist in everyone.

I'll work with you to master the common folds and bases, learn all kinds of models, and show you how to read diagrams so you can keep folding on your own, and even try your own original designs.

From folding paper, you can create beautiful pieces of art in five, twenty-five, or one hundred and five steps, from a simple fish to a three-headed dragon. The art of Origami truly has no bounds. It also improves hand-eye coordination and can feel calming and meditative. After every session, you will come away with amazing paper creations!

Jeff was such an amazing teacher. He came to our home and even brought the special paper with him. Our son who is 7 and his friends (8-9yrs) thoroughly enjoyed learning how to fold origami and it was a creative fun way to spend the afternoon. We hope to do it again soon.
