Tucked away on three acres in the heart of Tallahassee is a fascinating property hidden from view. A visitor walks down a wooded path and is greeted by a majestic live oak tree shading a soft lawn. This tree, a sapling in the time of Shakespeare, keeps company with something not seen in Florida, an English Tudor-style cottage, which looks as if it comes from the pages of a child’s book of fairy tales. With a steeply gabled roof, diamond-pattern leaded glass windows and stone foundation, the cottage continues its vigil over the gardens, labyrinth and tree surrounding it. A majority of the classes will be held inside the cottage, which is handicap accessible with a ramp in the back of the cottage leading up to the back door. If there is an overflow of parking, signs will direct you to the appropriate lot. There is a restroom in the cottage and portable restrooms outside.
