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.
