Teaching

Looking to learn temari with me? Here are the places I’ll be at in the coming months:

Red Stone Glen

I’m very happy to be teaching a variety of temari classes at the amazing Red Stone Glen Fiber Arts Center. Nestled in gorgeous Newberry Township, PA (just north of York), the glen is THE place to study fiber arts. Founder Sara Bixler and her renown father Tom Knisley are the fiber artist resident teachers, and the variety of classes held here year round is incredible. Red Stone Glen also features student lodging and a fiber store! Find out more information at their website:
