A note about our classes: All classes require participants to RSVP (434-293-2332) before the day the class is scheduled so we can prepare any materials and media that will be handed out. We also have a limited number of chairs available, so bringing your own portable chair is suggested. We want you to be as comfortable as possible. We strive to create classes that you enjoy and learn from. If you have any suggestions for future classes, please feel free to let us know!
