Classes in the Fountain Square Area

I just picked up a fabulous guide to the city's six cultural districts, and it reminded me about several class opportunities in Fountain Square.

Boca Loca Beads is Fountain Square's spot for jewelry-making classes. Topics include stringing beads, working with wire, silversmithing and making glass beads (a technique called lampworking). Classes range from $30 to $225 and take place primarily in the evenings.

Mass Ave Knit Shop offers a beginning knitting class, an adult knitting camp, and other varied knitting classes, such as Sockaholics Anonymous. There's even an afghan "block of the month" club.

Remember those old Gap commercials? At the Fountain Square Theatre, you can take swing-dancing lessons every other Friday evening.

At Arthur's Music Store, you can sign up for individual lessons on 22 different instruments, everything from drums, pianos, guitars and violins to bagpipes, hammered dulcimers and accordions. Voice training and music theory lessons are also available.

I'm sure I've missed some classes offered by the artists in residence at the Murphy Arts Center and the Wheeler Arts Community. If you have that info, please send it my way.
