Steven James

Steven James Steven James, spent his childhood breaking his art teacher’s rules — coloring outside the lines, peeling the wrapper off crayons and making glue skin in the palm of his hand.

Now that he is older, wiser and craftier, he still wants to break the rules, but he needs you to join in the fun. Put aside the responsibilities of your life and get back the creative connections you made as an 8-year-old. A full-time elementary school teacher, who has made appearances on the DIY and HGTV networks, he loves taking a break from his own routine and spending a few hours with adults who will hopefully avoid picking noses, scabs or fights, and focus on being as creative and inspired as possible.

Long considered the alleged love child of Martha Stewart and Christopher Lowell, his published work has appeared in magazines such as ReadyMade and Bead Style and books from Lark and Kalmbach. He has spread his love of handmade by developing craft ideas for TiVo, the Gap, and the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as various websites.

He lives by the mantra “What are you gonna make today?” and hopes to spark creativity in everyone he meets through a series of classes he teaches around the world.
