How cool is that?! I would never think to try something like blacksmithing. Pinterest can only get us so far and some of us just need the structure of a class in order to try something new. Not only that, most of us don’t have goats hanging around our house to do yoga with! 🐐

Which classes do you wish we had in the area? Let us know!

I personally wish we had a kombucha making class locally!
