You won’t regret it!

The Jumpstart is a 14-day guided adventure in forming (or reinvigorating) a stress-free daily art- or craft-making practice. Whether you want to take on a full year of daily making, commit to a 100-days project, or even just use this guided adventure as a two-week trial to see how it goes, this course will help get you started.

About Your Instructor

Kim Werker

Kim Werker

Camp Counselor for Grownups

Hello! I'm so excited to meet you in class. I'm Kim, and I'm a writer and craft instructor specializing in helping folks explore their creativity, try new things and have fun doing it. I firmly believe that perfection is boring, so my main goal is for my students to have fun, celebrate mistakes, and keep practicing until they get the hang of it. I'm here to cheer and nudge you along as you go.

I've written six crochet books and a book about making ugly things on purpose as a way to confront our creative demons, and I teach crochet at Craftsy. I also host a Community of Creative Adventurers, which is where you'll find me for help as you progress through my classes, and where you can connect with other folks from all over the world who also enjoy making things and talking about it (we have free weekly video chats – you should come!)

I'm a co-founder and publisher of Nine Ten Publications, a Canadian company focused on fibre- and textile craft, art and industry.

I live in Vancouver, Canada, with my family and our mutt.
