    For In-Home workshops: 

    I’ll Bring:

    • My expertise, creativity, and down to earth practicality and sense of humor
    • Safety gear, fire extinguisher, goggles, aprons and first aid kit. (I am Red Cross first aid certified)
    • Tables, Chairs, Canopy (if needed) and all the tools and materials needed for the class 

    Setting up the Space:

    • We’ll want a well-ventilated and lit area that can accommodate at least two 8” folding tables and has a flat ground, preferably concrete or wood.  An outdoor covered patio or an open garage space usually is ideal. 
    • If we choose to be outside, it’s best if the area is fully covered from sun and any elements.  I have a pop-up canopy if needed.
    • If it gets windy, we may need to perform certain aspects of the workshop indoors or in a garage out of the elements. 
    • Food and snacks are encouraged, however for certain projects when the making begins, should be moved away from the work areas.  
    • Beverages are ok on the workbench so long as they are in a covered container.
    • Access to water, sink and soap.
    • Plan for me to arrive at least 1 hour before the workshop begins to review the space and get set up. I can generally get packed and on my way within 30-minutes after class.
