FAQ: Private Classes

We offer a variety of classes here at the Woolen Mill Store -- check the Classes & Events tab at the top of the page to see the current offerings.

But if our schedule of classes doesn't fit your schedule, private classes are available.

To get started, call the Woolen Mill Store at (503) 535-5786 and talk to a teacher about the class you'd like to take. Maybe it's a class we already offer, maybe it's something we don't have on the list yet. We're happy to hear your ideas.

Private classes don't have to be for just one person. You can set up a private class for just yourself, or you and a friend, or a larger group.
