About the author: Steven James spent his childhood coloring outside the lines, peeling the wrapper off crayons and making glue skin in the palm of his hand.
Now older, wiser and craftier, he invites you to join in the fun. Put aside the responsibilities of your life and get back to the creative connections you made as an eight-year old. A full-time elementary school teacher, who has made appearances on the DIY and HGTV networks, Steven loves taking a break from his grade school routine to spend a few hours with adults who will hopefully avoid picking noses, scabs or fights, and focus on getting inspired, being creative and most importantly, having fun.
His work has appeared in magazines such as ReadyMade and Bead Style®, and books from Lark and Kalmbach. He has spread his love for the handmade by developing craft ideas for TiVo, the Gap and the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as various websites. Living by the mantra, "What are you gonna make today?" Steven hopes to spark creativity in everyone he meets, and loves teaching classes around the world.
