Classes + Workshops

I believe that making things by hand empowers people to live more joyfully and thoughtfully, and 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 about this, feel free to reach out!

Embroidery class at Flag Wool Festival

I’m also available for private and group lessons in knitting, sewing, felting, and natural dye, anywhere in the Flagstaff area, 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.

“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
