Log in

Workshops are in addition to our programming put on by the speakers we bring to our monthly meetings. Extend your knowledge and take full advantage of your membership by participating in as many workshops as you can!

 Members can sign up for a workshop at the monthly meeting, on this website, or by mail, as soon as the workshop has been posted. Non-members can take workshops when space is available.

Workshop fees are indicated, when available ahead of time, in the workshop description. The individual workshop fees are determined by the cost of the instructor, cost of having them here, any special equipment requirements, and how many students are necessary to make the workshop happen. We want to be able to bring in the best instructors at the lowest cost possible for our members.

Cancellation Policy:

A full refund will be given for cancellations 30 days prior to the workshop, or if your place can be filled from the waiting list. If it is less than 30 days before the workshop and your place cannot be filled, you must find your own replacement or forfeit the registration fee.
