Dear friend,
We are happy tpo share with you our latest news:

FIRST: New payment options:
During last years we have been asked many times, if there is any other way to register to the workshops&courses, apart from online deposit payments.

Yet just for the US residents, we relaunch a possibility for check deposits. In case, if you wish to  make the registration payment by check, please, make it payable to Philipp Davydov and mail to the church of our very good friend Fr. John Ball:

St. Mary's Parish
47477 Trinity Church Road
St. Mary's City, MD 20686

Besides, in case if you really wish and plan to participate our workshop,

but have no possibility to make the deposit payment right now, please, send us an email and inform us about your plans.

If you do, we will put your name on the list and plan the groups more precisely. When the group gets filled up or the workshop period approaches, we contact you again and touch the ground.

The last news about the payment, -  we have  decided to drop the registration deposit down to $100, (with remaining total cost as it was).

If you wish to register to any of our courses, please, check this page >>
