Classes + Workshops

I am driven by the belief that making things by hand empowers people to live more joyfully and thoughtfully. I like nothing better than connecting with students and communities in person. In my classes, I strive to build a deep understanding of concepts through hands-on experimentation in a supportive environment. I hope that my students leave with skills and ideas they can carry forward into their lives and share with others.

I want to explicitly welcome everyone to my classes, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexuality, religion, age, class, or ability. The textile-making skills that I care so much about are the inheritance of all humans. If you have questions or thoughts, feel free to reach out!

2020 workshops:

This year has been full of disappointments, and strange new opportunities … as you’ve probably experienced for yourself!

I’ve now cleared out my cancelled workshops, and will add new events here as they become available.


Printing and Painting with Natural Dyes Online Webinar

(Attend from anywhere with an internet connection!)

with North House Folk School

October 7th

Naturally dyed and printed scarves

Ever wondered about using natural dyes for screen printing, block printing, or painting on fabric? Join us for this live online webinar! Instructor Tasha Miller Griffith will demonstrate several techniques, using easy-to-source materials and tools, for vibrant, long-lasting natural colors in designs and patterns that are completely your own. She will cover the whole process from extracting dyes to finishing fabric, so adventurous dyers will get all the particulars they need to try these ideas on their own. There will also be plenty of inspiration for those just curious about exploring the world of natural color. Bring your questions about anything natural-dye-related!

Embroidery class at Flag Wool Festival

I’m available for private and group lessons in knitting, sewing, felting, and natural dye, in the Flagstaff area or anywhere via Zoom, on a one-time or ongoing basis.

I also travel to teach, so if you have an interested guild or group, I may be able to come to you! Click here to see an outline of current topics I teach.

I know what kind of amazing things can happen when people come together and share their creativity. Feel free to contact me with your ideas.
