Power Hour Mondays

Power Hour Mondays

Class Description:
We will spend up to 1 hour demonstrating a product in the studio and we’d love you to either participate or observe. Coffee, tea and cookies will be provided and you are welcome to bring a lunch.  We will reserve only 4 seats (please register below) for people to participate in the project at a small cost to help cover supplies. Anyone may drop in anytime within the hour without registration to check out the project (even if this is indicated as ‘sold out’).

This isn’t an instructional class – it is a product demonstration and time to experiment and mingle with others.

We will be taking pictures and video of the demonstrations and look forward to having some fun with you!
