Frequently Asked Questions
I missed the first class, can I still sign up?
Yes. We complete one project from start to finish in each class. Registration is always open and the system is set up to pro-rate your registration, so you don't pay for the classes you missed.
Can I sign up for just one class?
Absolutely! We run trial classes and open enrollment at our community locations. We have classes available on Mondays at the Schenectady JCC, Tuesdays at Our Savior's Lutheran School and Wednesdays at St. Kateri that are open to the public.
