Fall 2014 Workshops and Events
Please note: Workshops are held in classrooms with enough chairs for approximately 30 students. We recommend arriving in the room 5 - 10 minutes before the start of a workshop. To provide a high-quality workshop experience, we cannot allow more students in the room than there are chairs available.
