2024 is the third year I've run workshops in my studio overlooking Camden Harbor and it gets more fun each year. This year I'm planning courses all throughout the year (not just for summer), and with a variety of interesting creative projects. I hope to see you here in 2024! If your favorite class fills up, please let me know if you'd like to be on the waiting list. Spots very often open up, and sometimes classes are added due to popular demand!
