As of September 1, 2015 we will no longer offer pro-rated pricing for multiple-day classes if you cannot attend every day. Everyone will need to pay the full price. We want to encourage everyone to attend all scheduled class sessions as most projects in these classes take multiple days to complete. Missing classes may result in not being able to participate in scheduled projects as well as unfinished projects. Please call 641-421-3666 with questions
