Currently at Swatches

Winter classes: In-Progress | Spring classes: Early April

Swatches is growing and in order to focus on developing new classes, all Spring season classes will be in recorded format. This means the Spring classes will be available for purchase at any time, at a lower price point, and you'll be able to study through them at your own pace, but without homework review. We'll return in the Summer season with live teaching and feedback, great new classes, and additional instructors!
