The 2022 Festival Workshops will be held in person—with the following exception: Pietro Accardi is teaching Articulated Binding via live Zoom on Friday April 22.

In addition to registration fees, each workshop has a materials fee. These are listed in the workshop descriptions.

Workshop Hours All workshops meet from 9:00am to noon and 1:30-4:30pm. You may not enter your classroom until 8:50am.

Register early  Historically most registrations happens on the first day. Include second and third choices. If you do not get into your first choice and have not included second and third choices, you will not be registered for those day(s). The last day to register or change workshops is April 7, 2022.
