Flip Through the 2016 Workshop Catalog!

The Workshop Program includes one, two, and three-day workshops from June through mid- November. These workshops appeal to a broad audience by providing shorter length classes during the Summer Program season for those who cannot come for an entire week or who want a "taste" of what The Clearing is like before deciding to take a week-long class.
