Registration & Waitlists

All courses at Hearth have limited enrollment and are intentionally kept small. Registering three weeks or more prior to class start is advisable, courses without minimum enrollment may be cancelled. That said, if a class is full you may be added to our wait list and last minute changes may have left a spot open just for you! You will only be contacted if a space opens up for you.

What should I pay?


Unless otherwise noted, all of our workshops are designed for and open to students 18 years old and up. In the interest of encouraging intergenerational learning, some Hearth courses are open to students under the age of 18 provided that they are accompanied or represented by a fully enrolled adult student. Due to the unique nature of each course, minimum age requirements are defined by the instructor. All courses that are open for intergenerational learning are clearly defined by the course description. Tuition rates may vary for adult/youth pairings. Please contact us with any questions or inquiries.

We do intend to offer a more diverse range of classes as we grow that are age appropriate for youth and families.


For the comfort and safety of all students, we cannot accommodate pets on campus, in our workshop, or at any offsite classes. Regular breaks are scheduled throughout the day for all of our classes and give sufficient time for pet owners to care for their critters.
