Our practice sessions are led by one of our instructors, and are designed to build your knowledge and confidence in the hotshop through a carefully crafted curriculum of skills-based exercises. The course study goes through 10 levels of exercises that, when completed, will have you comfortably and confidently working on your own. Our goal is to make you ready to rent time in the hotshop.
We know that every student is unique, and comes to practice session with a different level of proficiency. So, upon entry, each new practice session attendee will be evaluated by the instructor. Once a baseline has been established, the instructor will work to move you forward in the areas of need. After the instructor has certified your competency in all 10 steps, your practice session time will be restricted to make room for new students.
Students are not required to do consecutive weeks, or keep to any schedule. Some students may gain sufficient proficiency after 4 sessions, while others may take 40. Some may do it in a month. Others may take a year. You can come once a month, or twice a week. There is no hurry or pressure to move at a given pace. Our instructor will work with each student individually, and decide when and if you are ready to move on.
Practice session graduates are required to rent time in the hotshop going forward. This is actually a better way to continue skill-building, because you will not have to share time with other students and will get more time working in the bench.
