Unless otherwise specified, all classes are held at our South Tacoma location, in the studio space off 54th Street. Follow directions to Fernseed South Tacoma (5243 South Tacoma Way) and check in with the retail staff for classes. Check in for after-hours classes directly in the studio space, which is around the corner from the shop next to the STW mural.

During shop hours you can check in at our retail space. If your class convenes after shop hours, you can check in directly at the Fernseed studio space on 54th street, just east of South Tacoma Way.

If a class you were interested in taking is sold out, we'd love to hear from you. Email hello@thefernseed.com to voice your request that we hold that class again.

If you wish to cancel or reschedule more than 48 hours prior to your scheduled class or workshop date, we may be able to swap your reservation for another available date. If not, we can issue store credit in the amount of your ticket purchase. Cancellations with less than 48 hours notice are nonrefundable. 

No, sorry. We don't allow consumption of alcohol during our ticketed classes. If you're interested in a BYOB event, consider arranging one of our private group classes.

In most cases, all of the materials for the classes are provided on-site. Read the class details for more information on what is included in each class.

Our studio space is wheelchair accessible, however our bathroom is not ADA compliant. For other accessibility questions or specifics, contact hello@thefernseed.com.

Do you have an idea for a class you'd like to teach at our space? Shoot us an email to: hello@thefernseed.com!

No. We'll have a class registration list handy, so all you need to do is check in using the name you registered with.

We welcome babes-in-arms (and chest carriers, and car seats) to all classes. We recommend rambunctious kiddos stay at home, but we can accommodate kids who can entertain themselves in a chair for a couple hours without issue.

You know your kid best! If you think a particular class is something they would enjoy and participate in, we welcome you to purchase tickets for children who would like to join. Our classes are alcohol-free and family-friendly. There is no age limit for classes unless specified in the class listing.

Fernseed does not have a dedicated lot. The closest street parking (free, 2-hour limit) is available on 54th street east of South Tacoma Way, directly in front of the studio space. Additional street parking is available on South Tacoma Way, on 54th street west of South Tacoma, and in adjacent neighborhood side streets.
