About Your Instructor

Kim Werker

Kim Werker

Camp Counselor for Grownups

I'm a writer and craft instructor, and I did my first Year of Making – making something every single day for a year – back in 2014. That project changed my life (not to be too dramatic about it) and I've kept up my daily making habit ever since. During that first year, I went from feeling pretty timid about my creative chops – even though I worked in the crafts industry and wrote books about making stuff, and even about how to battle creative demons – to feeling like I can make anything if I commit to paying attention to it and practicing enough. I went from seeing myself as a yarn crafter to seeing myself as a right and proper Maker of Anything. Generally speaking, I got over thinking I wasn't very creative and embraced the amazing feeling I get, and the fun I have, when I make things with my hands.
