Learn From Me!

Years ago, I taught an Intro to Stained Glass class through our local adult ed program. This weekly course was fun as I was able to share my knowledge with adult students eager to learn a new skill. It was rather exhausting though as I needed to carry crates of glass, tools and supplies back and forth each week.

I recently took a leap of faith and jumped back in to the teaching mode. I’ve recorded my first video lessons for Skillshare.com, and awesome website that allows folks with some knowledge to share those skills with folks who are curious and anxious to learn. The class is set up in “bite-sized” chunks… short videos that you can watch over and over.

Skillshare classes are designed to be project-based, so my first class introduces the skills needed to knit a Mobius Infinity Cowl! You only really need to know how to complete a knit stitch. The class will cover these 3 additional skills:

  • Provisional Crochet Cast-on
  • Adding Beads as you knit
  • Kitchener Stitch

Skillshare is a subscription-based website which allows you to view unlimited video classes with membership. Click here to register for my class and get 3 months of Skillshare Premium for only $0.99 for unlimited access to this and thousands of online classes. Also included in my written pattern for a Mobius Cowl which you can also find in my JiSTknits Etsy Shop.

Here is the introduction video… Let me know what you think!
