This Weekend's Events!




This weekend at the Workhouse Arts Center will be having it's annual Education Open House. There will be many demonstrations of various classes from glassblowing to digital photography to hand painted cloths. Not all the classes available to take will be displayed. However, if you come to the Open House and register for any class, you will receive the *Friends status discount*. This could be a significant savings.

I will not be doing any exhibits of my upcoming classes or workshops, although you will still be able to get the discount if you register on Saturday from noon to 5pm. Below are the workshops and classes I will be teaching this fall and winter.
