We are re-opening our studio to in-person workshops! 

Many of you have voiced that you’re ready to come into the studio with some COVID protocols in place. While some of the workshops and courses will run online this season, we will host many of them in-person. We hope to see you in the studio soon! Our in-person protocols are listed below.

We reserve the right to postpone in-person workshops, or hold them online, depending on COVID protocols needed at the time. Full refunds are available if changes to the dates or hours of the class are prohibitive for the registrant. Registrants will be notified as soon as possible of any changes to the class and/or schedule. We appreciate your patience as we navigate re-opening in an ever-evolving pandemic!

Please note we are NOT recording online workshops and courses, so you must be able to attend the online session synchronously.

If you wish to renew your membership or become a member to take the workshops you can do so here.

Our staff can be reached best via email.

We hope everyone stays safe and please take care of each other!
