Summer's almost here, Everyone!

We are pleased to present our Summer 2018 Schedule of Classes. You'll note that it’s considerably abbreviated compared to our usual "school year" sessions... After all, who wants to be cooped up inside when the weather’s nice? We’ll be back up to a full schedule in September!

We are, however, open to additional class requests and are (kinda) flexible with our schedule—we just need 4 or more attendees to run a summer class.. .just email us with your requests.

We welcome registration by email, telephone, and, of course, in-person. Payment is required prior to class start to secure your seat. Please feel free to call the store (905-715-7725) or email Liana to register.
