Please note: The number of projects you complete in any of our series classes depends on a few things:

1.) If you come to class each week. This one is BIG! If you miss a class or classes, you probably will not finish all your projects.

2.) How much work you do at home in between classes.

3.) Your experience coming into the class & the pace that you work.
