Classes and Workshops

Scroll down to the bottom of the page for a list of our upcoming classes and workshops, and check back in often!

You can also subscribe to our Events on Facebook.

If there is a course you want to take, or if you have a skill you would like to teach others, be in touch. Many of our most popular courses have started with a request from one community member. We would love to hear from you.

Some classes are drop-in, and others ask for pre-registration -- either way, signing up for classes ahead of time helps us (and the instructors) know how many people to expect. Sometimes we have to cancel a class if not enough people are signed up, while other times classes fill up fast -- so, if you’re interested, let us know!

There are scholarship funds available for classes and workshops. It is a core belief of the center that our programs should be accessible to everyone regardless of their ability to pay.

For information about scholarships, contact us at 207-733-2233.
