Where the Pups Finally Reveal What Has Been Going on Behind-the-Scenes

For the past several months we've been a bit quiet as we've been working on a big project which we are excited to finally reveal.
We have just opened a unique community workshop space called The Laboratory.
It's part unique children's classes combing science+arts where you learn chemistry by making perfumes and bath bombs, and you design your own robots from scratch and imagination, and students learn science with a Frozen-theme.
We will also be having adult DIY workshops taught by local artisans and makers.
They already published a piece about us, that explains it much better than I can. You can read it by clicking here. 
It gives some of that elusive background information we haven't really spoken about on the blog. (We also didn't realize we were about to have our photo taken!)
We are still teaching full-time and running The Laboratory on weekends, some nights, and school breaks.
Of course, we wanted to include some dog-related workshops and to launch our Adult DIY classes, we are working with a local chef to have a workshop on Making Artisan Dog Treats.
And Miss M and Mr. B will be hosting.
Miss M wonders if she will be paid for her time in treats. 
Stay tuned to our Laboratory Facebook page which will have the complete details to sign up. It will likely be March 7, and we are just finalizing the time. It turns out our Chef had an unexpected event at his restaurant, so stay tuned for the new date/time.
We are really excited about teaching how we want to teach, and we would love any help sharing our space and Facebook page and just getting the word out.
And it seems like the pups have already made themselves at home.

An idea for a dog related class would be how to act if you encounter a service dog in public, as it seems that a lot of people have no idea. A local service dog handler might be willing to come and teach the class, or at least help with it.

This is incredibly exciting! The children and adults who are fortunate enough to attend sessions at The Laboratory are very lucky, indeed. I only wish I lived nearby so I could participate as well!
