Most workshops are limited to an enrollment of five students; this assures ample one-on-one time and will occur over the course of a single weekend. The workshops usually will begin on a Friday evening (6pm – 9pm), all day Saturday (9am – 5pm) and Sunday afternoon (1pm – 4pm).
Fountain Hill Studio is located at 711 Fountain Street, NE, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
