education is not the filling of a pot
but the lighting of a fire
Classes and workshops may range from single half- or full-day events, recurring weekly or monthly afternoon/evening courses, and regular after-school programs. Our classes are welcoming, tailored for beginners, accessible to all, and offer learning opportunities for recurrent students. We teach skills from start to finish; our goal is to provide the tools, materials, space, support, instruction and love that students need to be able to learn everything they need to know to continue practicing on their own.
We provide memorable educational experiences. Our instructors challenge participants to approach new challenges with patience, while maintaining an attitude of love and appreciation for self and others. We make sure our student's needs will be acknowledged, and heard, and supported, and encouraged.
A sample of available programs is listed below. This is not a comprehensive list of all possible activities; often our curriculum, especially when working with children, may be developed spontaneously or be catered to meet the needs of a group. We do our best to cultivate, explore and follow students' natural senses of wonder and curiosity. Our programs are usually found to be approachable by people who are at least six years old. Some of them may not be appropriate for kids under 10. All required tools and materials are provided.
The prices for programming may be adjusted to meet the needs of your group or institution; additionally, a discount is available for schools, churches, homeschool groups and other nonprofit groups. Individual scholarships are always available for those in need; to inquire, please contact us.
