Thank you for your interest in learning with me! Below you will see all of the classes that I currently offer with the suggested times for a full class. I will gear the class toward the age and experience of the group. If you would like to learn any of these skills, please contact me to schedule a private class or contact your local library, museum, or nature center and tell them about me :)
