For those of you who haven’t heard yet, we are now located in the North Art Studios within the lovely St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 3601 N. North St. in Peoria. We are currently working on our schedule for the upcoming months.  If you are interested in a particular class, round up some friends and we will add one to the calendar.  We need a minimum of 6 to hold a class and at least 10 for a private event. Remember: all ages and all ability levels welcome at The Hive. Some classes are best suited for adults and same with kids. Accommodations can be made for participants with special needs. Just ask. 🙂
