Meet Our Class Teacher: Lauren Gandolfo!

Get to know the talented and passionate teachers at Jimmy Beans Wool through our engaging Q&A sessions! Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Lauren Gandolfo, a needle felting enthusiast whose love for craft started at a very young age. 

How did you first get started with craft, and what drew you to teach it?

I fell in love with yarn and crochet at a very early age. My great aunt, Peggy had an entire room in her house devoted to it! That’s where I’d spend my time when we visited her in downtown Hollywood.

 Seriously, Disneyland did not compare.

 Can you share a bit about your teaching approach and what folks who take your class can expect?

I approach teaching like I do my life; if it isn’t fun, I don’t do it!


What do you hope students take away from your classes beyond technical skills? 

 Students always comment to me that I really teach potential no matter the media, it’s what you do with it that counts.


Do you have a favorite project or technique that you love to teach? If so, what makes it special to you?

One of my all-time favorite groups to teach is children. Crochet chains lead to happy hands and beyond. The moment the lightbulb flashes, “I got it “, the magic is not far away with single crochet. I’ve had very large football players give up their lunchtime to come to the art room to crochet.


 What are some ways you like to unwind (pun intended!) after a long day?

 After a long day I unwind by taking a class myself!

I am a lifelong learner, and that is why I am such a passionate teacher. I want to teach a class and take a class that is exciting .
