New Round of Classes Added and Deadline Extended

We just put up nearly 30 classes on the classes page. Check em out!

As the event approaches, we’ll add a lot more information about the class – teacher bios, class descriptions, etc.

Due to the amount of questions we’ve received about late submissions, we’ve extended the class submission deadline to December 10th. So if you missed the boat on signing up this month, there’s still time.

UPDATE: We are getting FLOODED with great class ideas! Sign up by November 1st if you want to be included in the next round. 

If you’re interested in helping us organize Somerville Skillshare, come out to our volunteer get together in Davis Square on Wednesday, October 16th from 7-9 pm! Email for details.
