Workshops

We teach workshops at libraries, camps, schools, museums and out in the public.  Workshops are similar to classes, but they simply are a one session opportunity to learn a skill and to meet people.

Upcoming Workshops:

No workshops are currently offered in person, given to health crisis.  However, zoom workshops and social distanced workshops are available upon request.

Private lessons available.  You may request a workshop. We hope you can make it to our fun workshops!
