Our next class is February 1, 2019. We have class on the first and third Fridays of every month. We meet from 1–2:15 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Duluth.

You can sign up for our contact list here.

We follow the Duluth Public Schools for weather closures. If the schools have a snow day, we'll have one, too.

See WDIO's segment about our class here.

New and returning participants are always welcome. There is parking under the building and in the lot. 

Arrive a bit early to chat or just settle in. We start on time. Class ends at 2:15.

More photos of the class are available at Sylvie Deters Photography.
