COVID Policy

As of February 2022, we encourage all members of our community to be vaccinated. We are continuing to ask people to wear masks during workshops and when they're in the space with 3 or more people. Hand sanitizer and masks are available, as well as increased cleaning (especially after high traffic/special events).

If anyone feels symptoms they are asked to notify us and stay at home until they've received a negative test. We're a small group who are good friends, lets stay safe and protect each other.

This course is subject to cancellation depending on enrollment and COVID safety.
