            Cost for the 2 days is $175.00 plus a $25.00 materials fee. $200.00 in total.

            Dans' studio/showroom is located near the picturesque village of Wilno which is nestled in the hills of the beautiful Madawaska Valley region in eastern Ont. Canada. The Wilno area has excellent restaurants, B&Bs, guest houses, and motels as well as 2 galleries.
