Hello out there!!!
Welp. The time has come. We were really really hoping it wouldn't come to this... but public health & safety come first. It feels sad but inevitable. We are postponing this summer's Workshop Workshop until 2021.
We are disappointed, but it's so clear. Caring for community means taking care of one another, and right now, that means keeping each other safe by not gathering in person.
We encourage you to... Call a friend! Go for a walk! Write a poem! Learn to play a new song! Give yourself a foot massage! Build a miniature fairy village! Make some pinecone people! Have a personal dance party in your living room! Bake some sourdough! Research the history of murder ballads! Make up a game! Needlepoint a pep talk for yourself onto a kitchen towel! Darn your socks!
Definitely stay in touch! Connection is so so important, especially now. We'll be in touch as we look toward the future.
If you'd like to know more about The Workshop Workshop for future years, please read the info below!
So looking forward to the time when we can be together...
Your Workshop Workshop Coordinators,
Jenna & Leigh
The Workshop Workshop is a summer camp for grown-ups!
Curiosity, creativity, and kindness sit right at its beautiful beating heart.
How’s it work? Everyone's a teacher. Everyone's a student.
Here’s the idea: each person teaches one workshop — on just about anything they want — and takes as many as they like. Come with a skill to share! Come with an idea to discuss! Bring a big question to ask! Or…??? We get to dive into a stew of learning, connecting, exploring, and being — together.
Where does this magical thing happen? Camp is spread over four days at a beautiful retreat center in some super beautiful woods outside of Seattle. We get to stay in comfy rooms and are treated to tasty meals. Wanna come be a part of it???
Hey… Washington State educators! Professional development clock hours are available through Western Washington University!
