We have courses available for all skill levels, from beginner to advanced — explore our lineup of courses and workshops and find your creativity today!

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, so does our safety protocols at the Centre. That is why we require all students and instructors to be fully vaccinated in order to participate in courses and workshops. Proof of vaccination will be required upon registration. If you are unable or choose not to be vaccinated for medical, religious, or cultural reasons, you can still participate in courses and workshops, but you’ll be required to follow Public Heath guidelines (masking, social distancing, etc.) and provide testing results prior to coming to the Centre. The safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and the public remain our top priority.

Please note there are no refunds for missed classes. If, for any reason, it is necessary for the Centre to cancel a class, students will be notified prior to the commencement of the class and offered a full refund.
