Hey Camile! Yes, as per M SHOP, they hold the workshops in NYC each month. But they don’t confirm the date until after the current date passes. However, they try to keep it around the same time each month. So save this class to your wish list so you'll get a notification email when we have posted the new date. :)

The class provided numerous invaluable resources to assist in the manufacturing process. Additionally, Michelle was great with answering your questions no matter how big or small. She was able to make the class agenda span from basic 101 steps to an elevated tutorial of what your next steps should be.
