I offer a variety of knitting classes for adults and children; descriptions of each are below.
ADULT KNITTING CLASSES
Weekly sessions to get help with your current project. This small, informal clinic allows you to work at your own pace, get helpful advice, learn new skills, and share with other knitters. A great way to finish that project you put in your closet! During many of the clinics, I’ll showcase a knitting technique. For example, one week we might cover types of knitted ruffles; another week I’ll demonstrate a new cast-on method. Days of the week that clinics are offered vary each week but typically include one morning and one evening. Cost for the 2-hour clinic is $15.
