Projects must be a manageable size due to limited storage; check first with instructors. Vaccinations required, masks required indoors at all times.
What I liked best about this class was the extra time. The add-on class is an additional hour tacked onto the Open Shop class. It gives one a full four hours to work on a project. That extra hour is very productive.
