New location, new look, new class format!

At the new Santa Ana location, we have streamlined the workshop format to make it easier and much more cost effective to take classes. All workshops include the use of all tools, and materials are now available in an easy kit form making it much easier to budget. No more schlepping tools (unless you want to)! The new venue is dedicated entirely to workshops, the retail portion is discontinued.

The cancellation policy is listed at the bottom of the page.
