All participants are asked to wear masks and practice social distancing when not seated. The classroom and tables are thoroughly sanitized prior to each workshop and spray sanitizer/wipes are available during class, as well as hand sanitizer. The doors will be kept open and air continuously circulating. The restrooms in the building are cleaned frequently and there is a water bottle refill station on the porch. Please bring your own paper, pens, pencils for note taking, as none will be provided.
