Workshop Program

ONE- AND TWO-DAY CLASSES FROM MAY – NOVEMBER

The Workshop Program includes one, two, and three-day workshops from May 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.
