Ever considered a meetup group account?

I know we have our own website for classes, and not all of them are strictly interesting to the public, but some certainly could be. We could also organize some more casual “craft day” style events that have a coordinator but aren’t strictly about teaching but more public outreach. Local groups with themes and facilities similar to us have between 750-1200 “members” which are basically people who have attended at least one event and are added to a mailing list which the groups can use to push information about future events. I was looking into what it would take to create a group for ASMBLY and it costs about $20 a month which is pretty cheap as far as ad spend goes and it targets people specifically looking for an activity nearby and new communities to get involved in.
