Classes are currently postponed until May 31st


First of all, we want to say “thank you.” 

The support and encouragement we have received through emails and phone calls are nothing short of astounding.

It has moved us deeply that 100% of students affected by class postponements have chosen to attend to the future classes. We can’t tell you how encouraging that is. Your optimism is what makes this such a great community to be a part of. Thank you for being a part of ours.

Like you, we are self-isolating in the workshop.  This is a great time to work in your shop and on projects, and we are here to help. If you run into a problem on a project or need advice – we are here! Email us, FB, or call us – we can’t wait to talk to you.


What Can I do If My Class is Impacted?

 If you are just coming to this page to find out if your class has been impacted, here are your options:

Option 1: Defer your registration

 You can select your rescheduled class date or any other class either this year or hold it over to next year.

Option 2: Donate your money to the School

 We can earmark it for our special funds – like our Teen Scholarships, or Maker’s Hand Scholarship. Alternatively, it can be used as operating funds to help the School through this difficult time.

Option 3: Convert to a Gift Certificate

 The Gift Certificates will be valid for three years and can be used for any class, materials, or tools that the School offers. You can also give the gift card to someone else!
