Our workshops typically run two full days. Please select your preferred first day for the workshop. If you do not have exact dates or are interested in an alternative schedule, please indicate so below. Because we need to coordinate with instructors, a minimum of 2-3 months lead time is required for workshop planning.
The dates you have selected occurs outside of our 2-3 month planning procedure. Please be advised that we will not be able to guarantee that instructors will be available. If you have flexibility with your dates please provide those dates or range of dates.
Our workshops are offered primarily in English, with a few of our lessons available in Spanish. While materials are mainly in English, we know it can be valuable to have an instructor who speaks the native language of the learners. We will attempt to locate Instructors speaking a particular language, but cannot guarantee the availability of non-English speaking Instructors.
These recommendations are for in-person workshops. This number doesn't need to be precise, but will help us decide how many instructors your workshop will need. Each workshop must have at least two instructors.
For online Carpentries workshops, we recommend a maximum of 20 learners per class. If your workshop attendance will exceed 20 learners please be sure to include a note in the comments section below.
