I am currently only scheduling one on one classes in my studio in Joseph, OR. I occasionally schedule one on one and small group classes in Sue’s studio in Missoula.

Classes in the studios are generally limited to three people. You can register or schedule classes by contacting me at info @ donamiller.com or 541.362.1237. Watch here for upcoming classes or contact me with your interests.
For more advanced classes, these are often taught one on one in my studio. So if there is a specific technique you want learn, or specific project you want help on, let me know and we can get that scheduled too.
