Well - I am totally cheap and that is one reason I craft but I love free classes - I am such a sucker for anything free!!!
so here are a list of classes that are free that I attend weekly.On Thursday Nights at the
Home Depot in Sandy Springs
(on Ptree Dunwoody Rd - near Abernathy and Perimeter Mall)
they have been doing a "Women Teaching Women" Class
every Thursday night at 7pm.
You can call the store and ask what the class is each week. The store manager malinda is obviously a girl and they have a huge amount of other female employees in every dept. that teach the classes. The classes are very hands on and sometime you get dirty - so come in clothes you dont mind getting grout on!
I have been going for about the last 9 months every week and have learned all sorts of great stuff including:
tiling floors, tiling backsplashes, installing hard wood floors, installing parkey floors, installing ceiling fans, potted gardens, how to make a wooden and fabric cornice board, how to use powertools, making a wooden and lattace outdoor screen, staining, faux finishes - it is such a great class if you live in atlanta you really should not pass this up - you get coupons for 10% off sometimes, they always do a raffle every time to win great stuff - and the girls in the class are all ages and we have all become friends coming every week - we are all warm and welcoming and you will never feel left out and do i have to mention again ...IT'S FREE!!!! The Art Store (one is located just down the street from the home depot - in the shopping center with walmart on ashford dunwoody rd) offers free demos which is cool - every saturday and sunday from 1-4pm -
they are really great classes (only been to one so far) but the employees are so sweet and they rock - last week i met this girl during the canvas stretching demo her name is kelli and she helped teach me to stretch my own canvas, prime it, etc and she even let me do one - which we are not really suppose to do I dont think - but it was great!!!!
