i love teaching beginnings. i love watching it ‘click,’ i love how proud people are when they master a new skill, i love spreading the fiber arts addiction.
and so i begin, or rather, we begin with 2 classes that i will be offering every month.
beginning knitting (2 classes, 1.5 hr each) $20 for a single class, or register for both for $35
Learn to knit for the first time or get a refresher course. In this class, you’ll not only learn the basics of knitting, but you’ll also come out with your first finished product! Choose between making simple fingerless mitts, a cute square hat, a short neckscarf, or a cuff bracelet for your first project. We’ll also discuss gauge and selection of needles and yarn.

Have a hankering to make your own beautiful yarn? In this class you will learn to spin on a spindle using the park and draft method. In the second class, we’ll work towards actually dropping the spindle, learn to ply, and discuss how to finish the yarn.
Become one with your wheel as we get down to the nitty gritty of actually getting some yarn made. In this class we will work hard to get you and your wheel to understand each other in order to make lovely functional yarn. We’ll also work on plying and discuss how to finish yarn.
Although I do put these classes onthe schedule every month, I understand that we all have complex schedules. Feel free to email me at cosymakes (at) gmail (dot) com to show interest. Once I get more than one person, we’ll figure out a time that will work for everyone!
