Have you already flipped through our latest catalog and got excited about all our upcoming fall classes? Yesterday, early member registration for the 136 classes running September–December officially opened! With a two week headstart, members have the upper hand getting into popular courses like Woodturning and rarities like Bell Casting. And this session, we are offering 34 classes for the first time ever, so members get the first crack at fun new offerings like Wooden Toy and Belt and Buckle.

We know. Thirty-four is a lot. Take our short quiz below to guide you through the 34 new offerings and find the perfect fit for you (and maybe your family). And to make things easy, you can find some of our speciality courses being offered this fall listed below, including our new, rare, and most popular classes.

If you aren’t a member already, be sure to sign up to enjoy 10% off class tuition and get your spot first. Class seats are sure to disappear faster come public registration on July 30.
