Our studio opens 30 minutes prior to your workshop start time. Plan to arrive a little early to find your seat, look over your project, and get settled in. We start on time! When you arrive you will be greeted, given an apron, and directed to the bathroom to wash your hands. Place any snacks you have brought on the buffet and any beverages in the cooler. Take some time to meet your host/hostess and get comfortable. The fun is just beginning!
