Echoview Fibermill, Weaverville, NC
Echoview Fibermill has quickly become my favorite teaching location. It has all the amenities that I need for a class, it’s clean and well lit, and it’s conveniently located just down the road from my home. I hope to be teaching here for many years.
John C. Campbell Folk School
I began teaching at the John C. Campbell Folk School in 2013. The Folk School Experience is so much more than just learning a craft. It is engaging in community, making new friends, being exposed to other arts and crafts, letting someone else feed you, and it’s slowing down into the pace of the Appalachian Mountains. It’s like summer camp for adults. I highly recommend everyone experience it at least once!
Tryon Arts & Crafts School
I always enjoy teaching at Tryon Arts & Crafts School. The school lives in a retrofitted public school building with an artist shop, exhibition spaces, and separate studios dedicated to fiber, glass, lapidary, ceramics, jewelry, wood, welding and blacksmithing! Its a great place to go to get inspired!
Your Home – My class can come to you!
I am willing to travel, within reason, to teach shoemaking to your community. All I need is a space the size of two car garage, tables, chairs, students, and an organized person to host and promote the class. Email me to start the conversation: email@example.com
For some classes I offer work trade options at my homestead in Barnardsville, NC. The work trade I offer is all manner of homesteading work: building, landscaping, trail building, carpentry, farming, mulching, hauling, brush clearing
For the 32 hour Turn Shoe class I request 16 hours of work trade plus $80 materials fee. For the 36 hour Internal Stitchdown class I request 18 hours of work trade plus an $80 materials fee. Work trade hours must be completed before the class begins.
I am always open to Bartering. Things I need help in are:
- Electrical Work
