The idea is quite simple. The more you know and the more skilled you are, the more you will enjoy knitting and crocheting.
Things that might now send you up the wall … dropped stitches, inconsistent gauge, panels that don’t quite fit right … can become things of the past. You may drop a stitch now and then, but you will know how to cope with such things. Knitting and crochet will become much more of a true pleasure and much less a chore.
We welcome knitters and crocheters of all skill levels. Our classes make beginning fiber folk competent and experienced ones even more skilled. At Artisán Knitworks we separate fiber education and social knitting (Knit-Togethers). Knit-Togethers are free and open to knitters and crocheters, but if you need help beyond some quick advice, there will be a charge of $5 to $10. If you need more extensive help, we suggest scheduling a private lesson with one of our skilled teachers.
We have been known to bring in some of the nation’s best-known teachers. We’ve had events featuring Sally Melville, Barry Klein, Laura Bryant, Valentina Devine, Lily Chin, and others. We also host classes with local and regional teachers such as Lynne Wardrop and Sara Peasley.
We want fiber folk to become more independent and more confident. Unafraid to tackle increasingly challenging and creative projects.
Most fiber folk are more skilled and more knowledgeable than they realize. We’re here to help you make the most of what you know and to increase what you know.
Plus, we think all of this is great fun.
