We can always develop a custom workshop or offer one on one instruction, but the workshop offerings for May/June will be a bit stalled due to a large project.
The Open Vat night this month is this friday May 14th at 6:30, as always feel free to stop by for refreshments, and a free and open atmosphere to pull some sheets and talk about projects. This month there will also be an opening reception of photographs by Tamara Melcher on the first floor.

Work on this project will be going on Wednesday through monday, if you are interested in volunteering e-mail email@example.com.
