 I offer several classes which I teach in my shop in Hampstead, Md.  I offer individual, one-on-one instruction, which I adapt to each student's personal needs and requests.  Below I have listed the current class offerings accompanied by a description and cost.  I do not run a routine schedule of classes, but instead offer the classes "by request" on a first-come, first-served basis.  I also offer "unstructured" instruction so that a student is able to come and get whatever his/her needs may be.  I currently teach on weekends only, and you may request to "break-up" your 2 or 4 day class over more than one weekend if your schedule requires it.  You must be 21 or over to attend classes at my shop, unless I am able to make an exception due to special circumstances.  Due to the inherently dangerous nature of this pursuit, a Release is required to be signed in order to attend any class.  Payment is required at time of scheduling to reserve your space and materials.  If you wish to schedule a class, please contact me through the "Contact" link, or email me at CKNT@Verizon.net
