About the tutor
Clare (@my.heart.is.upcycled on Instagram) has been making and mending clothing since the 90s. She is an avid knitter after rediscovering it during 2020, taking to it like a duck to water (or maybe like a lamb to a paddock?). She has an enthusiastic, well rounded and playful teaching style and a 100% success rate so far in teaching others to start knitting or knit better with old-school skill sharing in person.
