When I presented this class in August I said I would try my best to find a Saturday date and do it again, for those that aren’t available during the week. Well, here it is! As I mentioned before, I know enough about the subject to know I don’t know it all – but I’m excited to share what I do know! Here is the class information. If you’d like to join, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
