Saturday, March 9
10:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Sunday, March 10
9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The workshop is sequential, and the second day builds upon the first. Please plan to be in attendance for the entirety of the two day workshop. This is the same workshop we offered in Fall 2018 over 2.5 days, but adjusted to two full days to accommodate a wider range of work schedules. 


Tuition covers instruction, snacks, tote bag, e-reader and other resources, plus access to alumni newsletter/network, and use of OHSS recording equipment during the workshop. We will serve a light breakfast and coffee/tea, both mornings.

Please note: Due to small class size, OHSS is unable to provide refunds for any reason. Tuition is non-refundable and is not transferrable upon withdrawal or cancellation.

In the unlikely case that we need to cancel due to extreme weather, the workshop will be rescheduled for the following weekend. If you decide not to attend a workshop due to weather conditions, but the workshop has not been cancelled by us, our standard cancellation terms apply.
