  1. I am trying to register for your course, but your process is not really user friendly. I ended up getting locked out while trying to create an account and then register for a course. Now I am locked out. I want to be able to take the course with my sisters, Elizabeth and Carmen Charlebois and with my brother, Fernand Charlebois

  2. Hi Angele. I received your registration, and will send you the course instructions shortly. Fernand asked about having his sisters join the course at last night’s class, and I assured him that registration will remain open until Monday morning. Looking forward to meeting you all at Sunday’s class!


    • Hi Rob,
      I’m afraid that registration has ceased as we are 4 classes into the course. There will be another course in the fall however, probably starting in late September. You can watch this site for an announcement, or you can send me an e-mail at alphonsepenney (at) gmail.com, and I’ll put it on the waitlist for the next course. I’ll send you an e-mail when registration opens.
