Tasha grew up in a family of makers and tinkerers and has been drawn to textiles of all kinds since she was very small. She is driven by the belief that making things by hand empowers people to live more joyfully and thoughtfully. In her classes, she works to build deep understanding through hands-on experimentation in a warm and inspiring environment. Tasha teaches at folk schools and fiber arts events nationally and writes for magazines including Taproot and PLY. She also shares free tutorials on her website.
I love meeting students where they are, and I'm equally happy teaching beginning knitters to cast on their first stitch or answering detailed questions about the intricacies of natural dyeing. Whatever their level, my goal is always to help my students understand the “why” behind what they are doing, so that they become more confident participants in their making process, and can learn to “listen” to the materials themselves.
