General information about our classes:

  • See ALL our classes here on our calendar
  • Weekly classes can be joined throughout the year.
  • Unless otherwise noted, our experienced instructors take students of all skill levels and meet you where you are – beginner to advanced.
  • Because seating is limited and materials must be prepared in advance, most of our Classes or Creative Workshops require reservations at least 24 – 48 hours in advance.  
  • Please read each description and follow individual class/workshop registration instructions. Also take note of any supplies you must bring or supply fees due at class.
  • Registration is not considered complete until payment is received.
  • Many weekly classes offer a “TRY IT” class (pay for one class).  Multi-week bundles, if offered, will save you money.
  • Also joining as a Member will save you money on classes plus offers other benefits as well.
  • In case of inclement weather, we will follow Walton County school closings.  Please check local radio or TV stations for updates.  We will update Facebook, if possible.
