Teacher Spotlight: Tiffany Nation
Our growing class list would be quite difficult to pull off without the awesome instructors - and businesses - we've been so honored to meet. We'd like to give you the same opportunity to get to know our Chattery teachers a bit better.
Meet Tiffany Nation, a creative jewelry maker who will be teaching us how to make necklaces with specially made paper beads on Thursday - just in time for Mother's Day!
Tiffany Nation is an artist, jewelry maker, and author. Born as a preacher’s kid who grew up with poor, she was taught the value of reusing and repurposing. After almost twenty years of marriage, Tiffany had to start a new life as a single mom when her marriage ended. It was then she reconnected with her past and the value of reusing and repurposing things. So, Learning2Green was born through her desire to teach others to recycle with purpose and that even used, broken, and damaged items, like people, still hold value. Learning2Green inspires and teaches you to convert recycled items into creative crafts, artworks, and more.
