We host Open Houses to better acquaint you with our class selection and teachers in January and May. TSW also showcases local designers and exceptional talent within the national community through lectures and trunk shows. We publish our schedule of classes twice a year.
We have a small kitchen on site with hot water for coffee or tea, a microwave and toaster oven, dishes and cutlery, and a small selection of kitchen supplies. You are welcome to bring a meal and use the facilities.
We are located in the Richmond district of San Francisco at 2010 Balboa at 21st Avenue. See the map below.
