Plantar Fasciitis Workshop with Deborah and Toby Matthews  Wednesday, December 9th @ 6:00 pm

Are your dogs barking? Do you have a hitch in your get-a-long? Is your refrigerator running, but your feet hurt too bad to chase after it?

Well, this is the workshop for you!
Join Deborah and Toby as they explore plantar fasciitis
from the inside out.

Class will look at the symptoms, pathophysiology, and treatment options available for this debilitating and oftentimes intractable condition. We will also teach and demonstrate a series of exercises and stretches that we have found effective in our private practices for addressing plantar fasciitis.

Flex Your Brain Series with IOBT makers and staff

More than ever we all need to make time for self care, play, and connection. The Flex Your Brain series was inspired by a request for a gardening video. Then, the idea came to us that so many of our teachers have creative practices and interests that they can share with you. We hope you can join us to try something different in a no pressure, “brain-flexing” class with lots of laughter and friends – old and new. To enroll, login to your account and click on Workshops.

Fall Knitting Workshop – February Hat with Kim Lien

In this workshop we will knit the February Hat by Kate Gagnon Osborn for Kelbourne Woolens. Pattern can be found here:


This hat uses a provisional cast on to make a folded brim and a body of various stitch patterns. We will use the Magic Loop method to knit in the round. This pattern uses a chart solely with no row by row written instruction. This class will be fun for ambitious beginners and for intermediate knitters who want to work on their skills. If you love this hat and are thinking “I have no idea what any of that is! Provisional cast on…charts…Magic Loop..?!”, then you should definitely join us! You only need to know how to knit and purl…sort of (Kim Lien can offer private tutoring as well if wanted or needed to complete the hat) and you can have a hat before the cold weather comes. Sign up at least a few days in advance so you can be sure to get the supplies you’ll need for the hat. See the link for the pattern above for the materials list.

Sundays: 3:30 – 4:30 5-week series beginning on November 15th – December 15th

Cost: $75

Basics of Drawing from Nature with Deborah 

Coming in January! 
Totally Beginning!!  Join Deborah for a two week journey into the joys of drawing from Nature. Years of experience have taught Deborah than anyone can draw, we simply need to learn to see in new ways, practice new skills, and drop the self-judgement that we learned in childhood.
Learning to draw inspires play and imagination. In this class, we will explore the shapes, contours, and spaces of objects from the natural world and learn to translate them into marks on paper. Come to play, laugh, and connect with some new and old friends.

Baking with Jessica – owner of Sweet Cravings
