A note to our students:

We are keeping our mask policy for the time being – both students and instructors will be required to wear masks in the class. We will continue to evaluate the recommendations and consult with our venues, and may make changes to our policies in the future. 

We will still be maintaining distance between households/groups in all of our public classes, and individual equipment for each participant to avoid unnecessary contact between household bubbles.

We thank you for your patience and continued cooperation in helping us keep our workshops a safe place to learn.
