Workshops

Workshops are like classes, but each is simply a one session class and they are a good opportunity to meet people and learn something new. We teach workshops at libraries, camps, schools, museums and out in the public. Sometimes a workshop occurs where we have exhibits. Workshops are a fun, learning experience
with benefits to all!
