Signing Up For Classes / Workshops


If you would like to sign up for any of our classes or workshops, please call the shop at (302) 732-6304 and we will be happy to sign you up! You can then either stop by and pick up your class supply list or request to have one e-mailed to you.

We will let you know if the class you have requested is full. If this is the case, then we can place your name on a waiting list. If for some reason someone decides that they cannot attend the class after signing up, we begin to call those people who are on the waiting list. Most of the time if we have a large interest in a particular class, we will schedule to have the class again and  then begin to contact the people on the waiting list before offering the class to the public.
