A couple of important notes:

  • To register for a class, send me an email and let me know what you’d like to take and I’ll send you a reg form.  (There are reg forms available on the Reg page so you can pre-fill and send me if you prefer.)
    • 503-866-0180
  • Classes taught by guest instructors do require a deposit at minimum and have stricter cancellation policies.
  • If you are planning on coming to an Open Studio, drop-in, or any other kind of class, please let me know in advance by phone, text, or email.  This is a small, personal workshop run by me with no other employees.  If no one lets me know they are coming to a class, I may decide to take the day off and head to the beach.  Who knows!  If you tell me you are coming, I WILL be here.
  • I am in my workshop most of the time evenings, days, weekends.  If there is no class scheduled and you’d like a class, or an open studio time, or just to visit, let me know.  I am usually flexible and will work my schedule to fit yours!  Plus, I love company!
  • There are many times I will be exploring mediums on my own and will send out a note saying something like, “Tomorrow I’m marbling paper.  For $5, you can stop by and play/learn/experiment with me.”  If you are my friend on Facebook or on my email list, you will receive notice about events like this!
  • If there is a class you’d like to take but it’s not on the schedule, contact me and we’ll schedule it for you alone or for you and a few friends!
