Six-Week Classes

Our six-week classes are designed to instruct students while inspiring and encouraging individual creativity. Most classes have 8 to 13 students and the environment is fairly informal, allowing the instructor to address the individual student’s needs and goals during each class session.

All experience levels are welcome. Class sessions are generally six-week sessions meeting for a three-hour class each week. Class/materials fee includes open studio time for the duration of the class session (Tuesday- Friday 11am- 6pm (open until 9pm on Thursdays), and Saturdays 9am-5pm). Additional supplies are available in our store. Special interest classes may vary in length, cost, and materials included.

Class sizes are limited, and class registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Registration may be completed online through our website at https://classes.mightymud.com

All 6-week classes are open to ages 16 and up. All minors must have an adult present at all times.

Why was my class/workshop cancelled?

Weather has unfortunately been a factor, and for safety and comfort, Raku has been cancelled on occasion. While unlisted, each of our instructors provide us with a minimum number of students for class or workshop enrollment. If a class or workshop is cancelled, the student will be given the option of transferring credit to another workshop or a full refund.

Refund / Reschedules

Refunds: All refund requests for classes and events must be submitted at least one week prior to the event or class in question. No refunds will be made after this time period, with the exception of true emergency situations.

Rescheduling: If you miss a class or an event, we are unable to reschedule your ticket. You must purchase a new ticket for any future events and classes.
