Learn at GPY

Here we outline upcoming opportunities to learn something new. We offer small group classes and events. Although not classes, we also offer Knit-alongs (KALs) and Crochet-alongs (CALs), they are led by GPY staffers and feature contemporary, fun projects. Participants join in to make the same project together and they offer great opportunities to learn from each other and share and exchange ideas, plus interesting conversation. There is not a charge to participate in KALs and CALs but we do ask that you purchase the supplies at GPY. We recommend that participants have advanced beginner skills.

Check the Calendar page for a complete schedule of events, classes, and workshops.
