Information for All Participating Students

All students must wear clothing made from all natural fibers (no stretchy things), and closed toe shoes. Long hair should be tied back.

We suggest wearing layers so that you can choose how warm or cool to be. The studio can be very warm in the summer. Don’t be afraid to use extra deodorant before coming.

You will need eye protection. Please bring in your own sunglasses or own prescription.

Please do not arrive at the studio more than a few minutes in advance of your start time as we are working with other guests and they deserve our focus. There are nearby coffee shops if you arrive too early, Sip is 5 doors down on Grand Ave, and Starbucks is a block away.

Street parking is generally available on with Hubbard Street or Ogden Street, occasionally on Grand Ave.  Racine Avenue is permit only parking.

Directions: We are located on the SE corner of Grand and Racine Avenues in the charming (and safe) River West neighborhood. We are just West of downtown Chicago, and easily accessed by any of the highways surrounding Chicago. We are right off the Ogden Ave. exit from I-90/94 South, or 1/2 a mile from the Lake Street exit from I-90/94 North,  3/4 a mile from the Ashland exit on I-290, and a straight shot from Navy Pier and the Grand Avenue exit from Lake Shore Drive.

All students must sign a liability release before participating in classes.
