Program Information

Location: Most classes will take place at BRIT or at the FW Botanic Garden. Some classes and workshops will be taught off campus and/or may include field trips to other locations around North Central Texas.

Cost: Class tuition varies depending on the length of the class and materials needed. Please see the individual class listings for exact prices.

Who should attend: GROW Adult Education workshops are open to and suitable for all interested members of the general public.GROW Adult Ed classes are designed for adults 18 and older. Interested children 14 and older are invited to attend classes with a parent or guardian if both individuals purchase a seat. Please don't hesitate to contact Laura Venhaus if you have any questions about this policy. 

Nice to Know: Since you never know where GROW Adult Ed might take you, we recommend that participants dress comfortably in clothes that are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor adventures. A sweater or light jacket is a good idea in case the A/C is working too well and closed toe shoes are always a good idea. Please check individual class listings for any specific requirements and, as always, don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at a GROW Adult Ed class soon!

GROW adult education is thrilled to welcome Colleen Duarte of And Other Adventures Embroidery who will walk you through step-by-step instructions for the 5 basic stitches used in her Wildflower Hoop.  In addition to step by step instructions, Colleen will share with you the tips and tricks she has picked up over the years and she'll get you started on your own Wildflower Hoop. This workshop is perfect for all levels so whether you already know your way around a hoop or you have never picked up a needle before, there is a little something for everyone. Please keep in mind, hand embroidery is a slow craft that is meant to be done at a leisurely pace.  While we will have time to walk-through and practice each stitch during the class, it is expected that additional stitching time will be required at home in order to complete the project. A full Wildflower Hoop embroidery kit  in your choice of color palette is included with your tuition. Additional kits will be available for purchase.

Please note: This class will be held at BRIT.
