Current 2019 Spring/Summer Classes & Registration



It's SO easy to register for a *PUBLIC CLASS!
 

Our spring/summer PUBLIC classes end at the end of July. Watch this space for our fall & Christmas classes. We can arrange to do PRIVATE classes anytime of year (see below).

Choose a date and class location from the list below. Then click on this link (or the link below) to send us an email. In the subject line write "REGISTER FOR A PUBLIC CLASS" and in the email include your name, phone number and the number of people that will be joining you (if any), the class name, date and location (either acreage OR Avalon). We'll try to respond within 24 hours with your confirmation.

Sample pictures & descriptions of all of the class projects can be seen below by scrolling down.

No need to prepay for the class. You can just pay when you arrive.


If you've selected a class at the acreage and would like to enjoy a beverage during the class, come a bit early and head to the restaurant bar to order. Our sangria pitchers are very popular and can easily be shared among 4 people - or not! We are fully licensed. This option is not available at our Avalon shop.

If planning to dine in the Firestick Cafe before the class (available at the acreage only) please arrive at least 1 hour 15 minutes before the class start time to allow a leisurely dining experience.

*PRIVATE CLASSES can be arranged any day of the week (morning, afternoon or evening) for groups of 5 (up to 120). The private class fee is $5 more per person than the public class fee. If you have less that 5 people in your group, a private class can still be arranged as long as 5 projects are made or purchased. For example, if there is 4 in your group, one person could make 2 projects or one person could buy the demonstration project for a total of 5 purchases. We can arrange a private class through email as well. CLICK HERE and write 'ARRANGE A PRIVATE CLASS' in the subject line. We can also arrange the MYOP (Make-Your-Own-Pizza) along with your private class. Click here for MYOP pricing and info. The MYOP option is only available at the acreage.
