Request a Noel Studio Workshop

The Noel Studio prefers to schedule workshops at least two weeks in advance. Request approval is dependent on facilitator and space availability; due to staffing patterns and training, the Noel Studio cannot accommodate requests for Friday workshops. Clicking on the workshop title will lead to a request page for that workshop.
