To host a workshop with Beth
Classes range from three hours to five days in length and are noted for their clarity and organization. Most of the classes include the knitting of a miniature historic garment so that the techniques are learned within the context of a sweater rather than a swatch. Design is emphasized in most of the classes with discussion, schematics, and worksheets which enable the knitter to continue a project outside of the classroom environment.
There is a minimum of 12 hours (2 days) of teaching. For optimum attention to students, class size must be limited to 20 people. Information about fees will be sent on request.
A workshop agreement will be sent to you once you have selected the dates and class(es) you wish. A deposit is required. Confirmed workshops will be listed on my workshop schedule.
Please note: 12 hour classes, though longer, are better paced for a wide variety of skill levels. Those classes which have 6 hour alternatives should be undertaken by knitters who are able to work quickly and are more experienced.
Teaching Equipment Required
* Flip chart and markers, or other writing system
* Drinking water for students and instructor
* Three long tables for displaying books, samples, patterns, etc.
* Student name tags are very appreciated
* Some classes require a slide projector and viewing screen, or sewing machines
If you would like to host a workshop, please write for teaching fees and available dates.
