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 (and now online). 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, sexuality, religion, age, class, ability, or other identity. 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!

“Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Tasha last night at the Fair Isle class. She is not only a beautiful person but a very knowledgeable knitter. She imparted her knowledge in such an easy, sweet way it was a joy to be in her class.” – Janice

“You have made me fearless. I am in your debt.” – Deborah
