Registration for each in-person workshop opens up approximately 8 weeks before the workshop begins.  At that time you can go to that workshop’s page and look for the green “Register” button.  Clicking on that button will take you through the registration and checkout process.

Sign up here to receive an email telling you exactly when the registration window opens.

All workshops have a maximum capacity and most workshops fill up.  As a result, we require all attendees to register online because if they come to the workshop to register in person, they may find out that there is no space.
