OUR CLASS MIX

Online classes

In early 2021 we returned to face-to-face classes in most venues. We also have many active classes employing various Remote Learning methods, e.g. email, discussion groups or Online Classes using Zoom videoconferencing (over 50 classes are still using Zoom). Congratulations to both tutors and members who have embraced the new learning opportunities.
