Miniature Makers' Workshop is proud to offer a wide variety on hands-on classes for all your miniature projects. To register for class and pay by credit card, please call the store at (248) 549-0633.
REGISTRATION/REFUNDS: We recommend signing up as soon as possible since classes fill up quickly. Teacher's designate, with regard to each class, a minimum and maximum number of students. We must receive payment for classes when you sign up. Students who have not included payment with registration risk losing their space and/or may not have materials for the project. Teachers put a lot of time into prep work and purchase the needed supplies based on the number of students enrolled. Of course you may register up to the day of the class if space and supplies allow. Click here to print out a class registration form.
Class fees are not transferable and are refundable only if the class is cancelled or we are notified at least two (2) weeks prior to the class date that you are unable to attend. We have found it necessary to establish these policies out of fairness to everyone. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
TOOLS AND SUPPLIES REMINDER: Ask for a list of tools and supplies for each class when you register. Most supplies are available for purchase at Miniature Makers' Workshop.
YOUTH APPROPRIATE CLASSES: Note that we have raised the minimum age to attend regular classes to 12 years old (unless specified as a "youth appropriate" class when the age will be determined by the instructor). We may also require the student to be accompanied by an adult who is registered to take the class. Some classes may not be appropriate - please ask prior to registering a minor.
LUNCH INFORMATION: For students taking all day classes there is not a lot of time (30 min) to leave the building for lunch. There is a Subway right across Woodward and a Firehouse Subs 2 blocks north. Both have subs, salads, sides and drinks. We have current menus on hand. You are welcome to carry something in with you, or "brown bag" it. We have a microwave and a small refrigerator/freezer if needed.
KEEP US UPDATED: Please update your information with us whenever it changes so we can keep our data base current.. We never share your e-mail address, your name, phone number or personal information with anyone.
