Classes are from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4; 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5; and 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6. Participants must attend the entire class time to pass the course. Cost is $125 for members and $160 for non-members. Students can register at the Newton YMCA’s front desk. Space is limited.
