NOTE:  The next available Introduction to Guild Safety Class is March 28, 2023.  This class is required for all new members prior to using the shop or taking classes.  To use the machine room, it will be another 3-5 weeks to complete subsequent required classes.  You can sign up on the waitlist for earlier classes in the event a space opens up.  The waitlist also helps the Guild determine if more classes need to be added.
