Classes are open to students age 16 and up. Students under 16 may be considered if they'll be taking class along with an adult family member. Smoking is allowed outside of the school only. No pets allowed, except trained service animals. 

Cancellations accepted at least 60 days prior to the class commencing (less the $55 Registration fee). Cancellations made under 60-30 days prior to class start will be refunded 50% of the full amount due.  Classes cancelled less than 30 days prior to start unfortunately can’t be refunded. If we have to cancel a class for an unforeseen emergency, inclement weather, or low number of registrations, a full refund will be given to students.  

Regardless of date of withdrawal, there will be a $60 cancellation fee plus, in addition, the $55 one-time Registration Fee is non-refundable.

Classes with less than 8 students may be cancelled.

A document will be emailed to you with all of the the class policies and a liability waiver. All students are required to sign and bring this document to their class.

We plan to abide by state guidelines re. Covid.  The shop is a small one, so our advice is for anyone who feels they are at high risk, or will not be comfortable in a small shop setting may prefer to wait til 2022.  

I want to let you know what steps we are taking to minimize the threat of the virus spreading and to ease your concerns.


  • All classes will be limited in size.  

  • All classes are fully refundable if cancelled within the 60 day policy

  • All benches, machines, hand tools, and door handles are sanitized after each class.

  • We recommend anyone not feeling well or with significant concerns to wait until next year
