Get School’d is a weekly educational workshop series held at the Gladstone Hotel. Each week we team up with a local artist or creator to provide an accessible space where you become the artist! Everyone loves to learn new things, right? We aim to provide an environment for workshops that connect you with like-minded learners, fascinating instructors and unique ideas. Plus, you can drink while you learn!
The Flying Books School of Reading and Writing holds small-format classes on criticism, journalism, fiction, memoir, writing for the internet, and more — all taught by experienced writers and instructors, including Carl Wilson, Desmond Cole, Lynn Crosbie, Russell Smith, and more. All classes meet at the Gladstone Hotel on Tuesday evenings from 7-9 PM.

Macramé adds amazing texture and coziness to any wall or corner of the home and is really fun to learn. Meet new people, master a new craft, and walk away with a beautiful planter that YOU can brag about.
