I want to learn metal crafts using a scribe/jeweler or marquetry saw and soldering. I live in Los Angeles (specifically Burbank) and I've tried vocational schools but can't find any specific courses, just entire certification programs in welding & such. I'm better learning when someone experienced is teaching and not from a book. I'm willing to pay for courses...just can't find any.

I have a very soft and high pitch voice. I also speak quietly, and mumble a lot. When speaking on the telephone, I often hear that I sound like a little girl. [more inside]

I want to make stuff and do stuff in the Boston area (accessible by the T) that's not intellectual and academic, and as a welcomed respite during grad school. A friend and I have been thinking about things like shop class (making stuff you can use is incredibly fulfilling!) or stilts walking, or something interesting and fun and active - besides a dance class, sports, or pottery class - that we can do with some regularity (once maybe twice a week).

I don't know much about architecture, except that I really enjoying time looking at good examples of it - and will go see places just for that.
Where can I find free or low cost classes to learn more about architecture? (Second choice would be a good online resources). I'm not only looking for classes (which I can do via google), but people's experiences with them I am in DC. Transit accessibility is more or less a necessity.

Are there any schools that have something like a week-long auto repair course? Preferably BMW-focused, and preferably in the DC Metro area, but even without those two, would still be useful. [more inside]

A good friend is getting married September 1st and I'm interested in buying for her and the Mr. a certificate for an at-home cooking lesson for the two of them--they've taken cooking classes before and dug them so I thought it might be fun for them to do it at home in their new place with their new stuff.
We/they live in Chicago--does anybody have any recommendations for places? I've come up with a few on Google but I want to see if anyone's had any personal experience with this since it seems a lot of it would depend on good customer service.

May I pick your brain for a moment? Yeah, thanks. See, I'm thinking I want to join some clubs or groups or organizations in the Bay area to inspire myself as well as to meet more creative, vibrant, funny, smart, interesting people my age. Tell me, what does the Bay area offer that might really enrich my life here that I might not know about? [more inside]

I'm looking for a non-degree web design program in the NYC area. In other words, something that would last a week or less to teach the basics of web design, layout, different packages, etc.

Please recommend good cooking classes in Seattle. I would like to give a friend a cooking class as a holiday gift. Said recipient is an omnivore (no dietary restrictions), has strong beginner (I wouldn't quite say intermediate) skills in cooking, loves both "American" and a wide variety of ethnic cuisines, and (just a random fact) is a fan of the Food Network.

Dad and I want to take a class together for a few days. We've looked at the ones we already know about -- boat building, blacksmithing, race car driving, cooking -- but have decided that we want something 'different.' Doesn't have to be practical -- in fact, it might be nice if it was something we'd likely never do again. Mostly interested in experiential type things, since traditional classes tend to beat the joy out of new experiences for me. Willing to travel. Any suggestions?

I've been looking forward to taking classes at the YWCA Arts & Crafts League in NYC, ever since I found out about it a few months ago. However, it turns out that they will closing after their current term of classes, possibly re-opening in the fall with a reduced slate of classes. What other reasonably priced options are there in NYC (Brooklyn, Queens or Manhatten) for arts & crafts classes? [more inside]

It's time for us collegians to sign up for classes again. I am always faced at this time with a dizzying array of choices when looking in the course directory. What was the best college course you ever took and why?
