Hey everyone!
Thank you for all the positive responses and shares in regards to the October classes. Here is a new flyer we made to help spread the word about our classes coming up at the beginning of November.
The website has been updated with all the details of our classes to be more clear and concise.
These classes would be a great way to get some woodworking under your belt and make some Christmas presents as well!
We will also be posting dates for our January classes in the near future so keep an eye out.
Please share if you have a spare minute!
