Can’t Attend an In-Person Session?

That’s okay! We will offer synchronous Zoom access to each in-person session, so enrolled learners can still participate from afar. While it is ideal to attend in-person for these hands-on lessons, we realize it is not always possible. The Zoom sessions will also be recorded and posted in the course site for later viewing.

We are able to waive enrollment fees for this first group with generous subsidization from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation

For all inquiries, please contact Casey O’Brien at Thank you!

This course is full, but you can add your name to the waitlist should a seat open. Otherwise, we will contact you when registration opens for the fall offering.
