About the Instructor:

“I discovered Ojai during my teens and dreamed of living here until we bought our home and moved to Upper Ojai in 2004. I retired from the Department of the Navy as a Management Analyst working in Washington D.C. and Port Hueneme, California after 30 years. Sharing my purple house with my exceptionally talented husband Richard, we together enjoy our 3 llamas, chickens, 4 cats, 1 dog, and who knows how many Zebra finches, and wild animals including the occasional bobcat and mountain lion. I continue to work as a ceramist, glass artist, jewelry artist, and I am absolutely addicted to yarn and knitting.”  

Cost $75. Including materials.
