Instructor Biography: Casey Lee
Casey comes to us from the frozen tundra that is western New York--and a background in opera. A prolific knitter from an early age (a hobby driven by fear of freezing to death), she has developed many other skills on her journey to another dimension. This mish-mash of post-apocalypse-handy expertise includes spinning, crochet, painting, sewing, making things out of sticks and duct tape, creating pate that’s even delicious on confectionery, pulling weird faces, pursuing activities that were suggested as jokes, and most recently, welding and fire eating. She hopes that in the future, this list of feats will also somehow involve dirigibles.
