Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a class and a workshop?
Classes are six weeks long. They meet once a week for three hours. They are equivalent to half a university class and built around a specific curriculum which includes research, design thinking and skill building. All classes culminate with a project.
Workshops, on the other hand, meet only once for three to four hours. They include one exercise or project and they are designed to make you feel creative, enjoy your time and give you a taste of what a class on the same topic would include.
How much does a class cost? And how much does a workshop cost?
Class tuitions vary between 200 dollars and 300 US dollars depending on the class. Workshop fees vary between 15 US dollars and 80 US dollars depending on the workshop.
All fees and tuitions include the cost of tools and materials.
What do I need to bring with me to class?
Nothing! We offer all tools and materials as part of the workshops and classes. So come as you are and start playing!
