About Rhiannon
My name is Rhiannon and I am a third generation crafter. Originally I went to school for art history, all the while crafting. Eventually I had enough of studying other people's work and instead wanted to make my own and empower others to do the same.

I consider myself to be the "Swiss Army Knife" of crafters. I have delved into nearly every craft and love passing this knowledge onto my students. For these reasons I have a diverse range of crafts I can teach, including: knitting, crochet, embroidery, hairpin lace, needle felting, and shuttle tatting. In addition to my passion for a variety of crafts, I also love teaching a variety of skill levels, from students beginning their first stitch to someone who wants to redesign a pattern.

With a positive attitude and a willingness to learn I can teach you any of a variety of crafts.

Myself and a co-worker spent 3 lunch hours with Rhiannon learning the basics of crochet. Rhiannon taught us the various stitches and patiently worked with us until we were comfortable with each one. She also directed us to an online resource to support her instruction that we could refer to as needed. This was our first online lesson of any kind and we were extremely happy with what we learned and the convenience of learning it online. Thank you Rhiannon. :)

Hello! My name is Kathleen and I'm excited to share the magic of paper folding with you! I've been folding since I was in Elementary school and teaching formally since 2004. I really enjoy helping my students find success in origami. If you are a beginner or looking to learn a certain skill or model, I can help you reach your goal.
I am also a licensed teacher and have a degree in teaching Spanish. Teaching and tutoring Spanish is another passion of mine! I'm creative, patient, flexible and understanding.
I look forward to helping you realize your paper dreams and/or Spanish goals!

Great first lesson. Kathleen contacted me in advance to find out what I’d like to work on and she was prepared with several options tonight. Her helpful tips on folding and diagram reading were just what I was looking for. We agreed on the next piece and I’m already looking forward to our next lesson. Thank you!

Kathleen is a very pleasant person to learn from. She is patient and very willing to redo if you need a rerun on a step. She is very knowledgeable and has a lot of learning things to share. I love my origami lessons, looking forward to each new experience. Kathleen is a very nice person.

I was looking for a boost to my new hobby with origami, and have had two lessons so far with Kathleen. I couldn't be happier with the lesson experience; her approach is detailed, clear, easy to follow along with and relaxed. She was even folding upside down from her point of view so that I could see from across the table. I was really impressed. There's nothing like learning from a real person. Definitely looking forward to more lessons in the future.

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.

About Joey
Hello Artist-in-Progress,

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!

I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.

I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.

Classes I teach are:

• Drawing Fundamentals
• Advanced Drawing
• People and Anatomy
• Portrait Drawing
• Cartoon Characters for Animation
• Character Design
• 2D Animation
• Digital Painting in Photoshop
• Digital Animation

Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may hav
e.

I look forward to helping you develop your art skills and express your creativity!

Mr. Joey

About Christelle
I love creating: writing, knitting, seeing new things come to life and thrive. I have extensive experience teaching women's health classes and counseling in natural women's health, because motherhood courses through my veins. I am also a published author and speaker.

I love to encourage and support my students and build into your lives -- to see you make goals, work hard to achieve them, and then succeed! If you are a student who will work hard -- and have fun doing so -- and want a coach who will cheer you on, then I am the teacher for you!

Baby Sign Language classes are either caregiver and child or caregiver alone. Baby Signs classes are appropriate for young children age 5 years old and under. Health coaching services are for women age 18 years old and up. My ESL classes are for women who are at least 18 years old.

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.

Christelle is very knowledgeable and personal at the same time. I like how she can draw a lot from her personal experience as well.

About Wendi
HI, I'm a self-taught designer and decided to follow my passion after being pushed by others who love my work. After helping many friends and family members decorate and create their unique spaces. I wanted to help others have a wonderful space to return to.
I have worked with about every kind of style and nothing scares me. I have the ability to create and teach others to be bold. Your home and office should reflect who you are. You also don't have to break the bank in doing so. I have taken garage sale finds and turned them into beautiful pieces. There are certain elements that you must have in any room to make it complete, and I know how to do this.
I also can organize every room in your home to help you save time in your everyday life.
I hope to meet you soon.

About Shannon
I am a creative soul who loves flowers. I enjoy the positive energy that flowers have. All of the different smells, textures and designs are what I have a passion for. I am a self taught floral designer and I have different modern day techniques on how to design, create and process flowers.

I have owned and worked in flowers shops in multiple states and have recently entered the floral event business and I have found it to be a whole other beast. Which, I am absolutely loving! Everything is on a much grander scale. I can do anything from 10 simple centerpieces for a small intimate event to 300 centerpieces, entry pieces, cocktail pieces and whatever else in a matter of hours.

I have worked with some amazing people and I have soaked up some tricks and I feel like sharing what I know. I can show you some basic things such as arrangin
g your everyday flowers to more detailed oriented floral designs like big and airy, low and compact, centerpieces, entry pieces, special event, sympathy, tropical and highend floral styles . There’s so much to learn!

Floral design is very fun and very rewarding. There’s something about working with flowers and creating something beautiful and custom made. Flowers are so very calming and therapeutic. I really enjoy all the positivity surrounding this profession. Flowers do have powers! I love what I do! Let’s get to designing!
