We offer several workshops, classes and topics. All the supplies are provided. You can book a group or just yourself. We also do homeschool classes for all ages. Look through the classes and pick one that is of interest to you and your group, and if there is a set date and time , this means that there is already at least one student. We will make room for you if you want to join. If there is no date or time set, you can be the first to set your date and time, and we will try to get others to join. Call our shop at 423-518-1229 and sign up. We ask a $10 deposit for a workshop for the sake of getting your table set up.
