I have a Masters in Crafts Education! I love to teach people new skills. I hail from Western NC, but I moved to Brooklyn in late 2011 and taught classes all over the city in knitting, dyeing, batik, candlemaking, block printing, and more. I’m a crafts teacher, glass artist, fledgling designer, and aspiring acro yogi. Now I live and work on a beautiful piece of land outside Asheville, NC, teaching crafts and music and dance and gardening to high schoolers. While living in Williamsburg, VA I worked part time at my LYS and part time as the arts teacher at a local Montessori school. I will sometimes moonlight as the head of the crafts programs during the summer at an overnight summer camp. For six months, I lived and created a great body of craft work at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC (while working as a student host). I was also one of the organizers of the Brooklyn Contra dance, and have been active in social dance scenes for more than a decade now. I like colorwork, cables, cardigans, EZ, silk/wool blends, and autumn colors. And purple-blues. And lists.
