Another summer has come and gone, and with its departure, we welcome another bustling season of school, work, and let’s face it—stress. Do-it-yourself classes require you to take a step back from the “go, go, go” of everyday life, promising a relaxing atmosphere to unleash your creative potential with friends and family (or even just as a solo getaway). Pop in at one of these September DIY classes before the hustle of the fall season hits full-force.
