Register For Workshops

Interested in trying your hand at something new? We offer a variety of classes—from writing workshops led by published Northwest authors to visual arts workshops led by local or visiting artists to clay studio workshops led by one of our own instructors. Most workshops are open to any skill level, but if not, we’ll indicate that below.

Please Register Early:  Many of our workshop leaders come to Manzanita expressly to offer these opportunities and it’s important to know the level of interest in order to ensure the workshop will take place. In addition, some of our workshops sell out quickly, so registering early ensures you’ll secure a spot.

Current Workshops:   Click on the workshop name for more information. If there’s no link yet, watch for details coming soon on the blog.

It’s easy to register! Simply click on the Add To Cart button below each workshop. Please see our refund policy, in the event you can’t make a workshop you’ve registered for.
