    Beginning Crochet

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.

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.

Rigid Heddle Weaving

Learn to weave! This four-week class is for beginners; you'll will learn how to set up and use your loom, plus how to choose yarns for weaving. Experienced 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. The first project is your choice of a woven scarf or cowl, with samples and recommended yarns to ensure your success. You will also receive a helpful list of terms, suggested resources, and a step-by-step guide to the process.

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.

Wet Felting

Learn the basics of wet felting at this fun, hands-on class! Your instructor will guide you through the steps while helping with color and design choices. You’ll be amazed at how these soft fibers hold together when subjected to hot water!

This beginning-level class will provide you with the skills you need to create all sorts of felted items.

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.
