Is there any place in DC areas that gives lessons?

I'm a good cook and a pretty good baker, but I want to improve and while I can look at pictures and watch videos, it's not the same as being with someone and seeing and feeling it for real.

I look at KA classes, but that's a major drive for me and they are alway, always sold out so far in advance. I try to search online and find nothing local, but how can that be? I live in the Baltimore/DC area. There HAS to be something around here? I found a couple 'sort of' things, but not a real bread baking, especially getting into artisan style baking classes for the home cook.

Any suggestions or anyone here locally willing to teach me more?

And I did google and didn't find that! I searched for 3 pages and got things in Oregon and Denver Colorado, but not DC area - go figure... now to figure if any of these are feasible to do! Thanks!
