My classes are held at Architectural Kitchens & Baths, the little yellow house at 345 Lafayette Avenue in Lexington. This is at the corner of Lafayette & Euclid Avenues, across from Kroger. There is parking available on the Euclid Avenue side of the building, and more parking in the Republic Bank parking lot.


Classes begin at 6 p.m. except for the July 24th Brunch, which will begin at 9 a.m. The cost for classes is $75 each and that is payable by cash or check. Gift certificates are available and they make great gifts.


To register for a class, you can email me at, or call me at 859-533-3553. I require a minimum of eight persons to conduct a class, so check with family and friends to join you. Please give me at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel so I can offer the space to someone else.
