I offer regular classes from 6-8 pm on most Tuesdays of the year between September and May. Summers are busy so if you need supplies or help, I am happy to set up an appointment.

My studio is located at 4130 Gravenstein Highway North in Sebastopol. (See below for map). Each class is 2 hours long and costs $10. I have a “come if you can” policy, I just ask that you email or call me the day before to let me know if you are coming to class.
