There will be a choice of blades and a choice of prices of these blades. Please bring $15-$20 (depending on which blade is chosen) at the start of class to pay directly to the instructor.

Notes about allowing youth under 18: Youth okay! Parents need to be sure the youth is able to do the work and be prepared to stay during class. Legal guardian must accompany youth under 14. Separate registrations required if you both wish to do your own project, one registration is fine if you plan on working on one project together.
