Please register for this class ONLY if you are in Southern California (or will be in Southern California) and can attend for the entire run of the class as we are not able to offer substitutions or make-ups for missed classes.
Warning! We use latex products in this course ... while latex allergies are rare, if you know that you are allergic to latex we would recommend not taking this course as you will definitely come in contact with latex both in liquid and dried forms.
