Open Training Program vs. Open Studio

Please note that our Open Training program is different than Open Studio times listed on our schedule.

Our Open Training Program give you the freedom to use the studio whenever it is available, but requires prior approval and the above monthly fee.

Open Studio times have specific slots on our schedule, which you can register for the same way you’d enroll in a class. Prior approval is not required as Wise Fool staff are present during Open Studio time to supervise! Open Studio sessions are only $10 per class.
