August 2016 Schedule

We hope you all are enjoying your summer and staying cool!  We’ve been busy at the studio this month with classes and commission work – enjoying old friends and making new friends!  This August we will not be holding classes as we work to get caught up on our own work before the fall hits which has been a traditionally busy time for classes.  We are currently taking enrollment for our September and October classes, so feel free to stop by, email or call us to enroll today!  Since we will not be holding classes in August we will be closing on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 6:00 PM, so no studio time for those of you who normally come in in the evenings to socialize and work.  We will still have daytime studio hours and Saturday studio hours.  If you wish to come in and work during those times (Tuesdays and Thursdays 10 – 1; Saturdays 10 – 4) please call or email us at least 24 hours ahead of time to schedule your time.

We will closed the week of August 28th until Monday, September 5th for vacation.  We will reopen on Tuesday, September 6th with normal business hours.
