*THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED FROM FRIDAY 9/4 to FRIDAY 9/11*! Want to meet our teachers and learn more about Trade School? Want to check out our new community classroom? Come one, come all! Fall marks our annual anniversary, and we'll be celebrating by hosting a First Friday open-house to kick off our Fall semester with our teachers and YOU! Light bites and complimentary beverages from Nameless Catering and Sun King Brewing will be provided, along with plenty of opportunities to meet interesting people and engage with Trade School. On-site class registration will be available and we'll provide some interactive ways for you to give our space some LIFE! There is no cost to this event, but if you're able to offer something from our barter item list below, we sincerely THANK YOU for your help in building our space!
