Specialty Classes

1 of 3

Beginning Knitting

Learn how to knit and join the growing community of Portland knitters.

You will learn all the basics in this class — how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. You will also be introduced to patterns and how to read them. This class happens once per month.

General Knitting

Join a group of fellow knitters in an interactive environment. Bring your own project, or an idea for a new project you'd like to start.

These small groups allow you to receive individualized instructor coaching, as well as learning from what others are doing. You will find yourself trying new techniques knowing that the instructor, and your fellow knitters, have your back! Students of all levels find these groups fun, supportive, and creative.

Beginning Crochet

Learn how to crochet, and take part in the recently re-invigorated crochet trend!

You will learn all the basic crochet stitches — chain stitch, singles, and doubles. You will also be introduced to patterns and how to read them. This class happens once per month.

General Crochet

Bring your own crochet project, or supplies and an idea for a new project you'd like to start.

These small groups allow you to receive individualized instructor coaching, as well as learning from what others are doing. You will find yourself trying new techniques knowing that the instructor, and your fellow crocheters, have your back! Students of all levels find these groups fun, supportive, and creative.

Rigid Heddle Weaving

Learn to weave! This two-week class is for both beginners and continuing students. In six hours of classroom instruction, you will learn how to set up and use your loom, choose appropriate yarns for weaving and how to finish your woven projects. Experienced floor or table loom weavers can also enjoy learning to use a portable rigid heddle loom, so they can take projects on-the-go.

You'll have hands-on help every step of the way in this class. Your first project might be a woven scarf, table mat, or fabric for a bag or pillow cover. Continuing students will receive assistance with any project they have on the loom. You will also receive a helpful list of weaving terms, suggested resources, and a list of recommended reference books or videos.

You will need to have a rigid heddle loom to participate. We're happy to special order your loom from Ashford, and we provide a student discount once you are registered for class

Wheel Spinning

Are you interested in learning to spin — or taking your spinning to a higher level? Do you want to experiment with spinning new fibers? If so, this is the class for you!

Come join an experienced and knowledgeable instructor who can teach you the joy of spinning. They will work with each student individually, providing coaching and advice directed at your needs.

Private Lessons

These sessions are for when you want one-on-one instruction or need some extended time to help solve a project problem.

They are also a good option when class schedules aren't working for you. Instructors book private lessons in 1 hour or 30 minute increments.
