Workshop Registration

General Information:  There are important changes to registration procedures for FFAA workshops that simplify our process.

A link will appear on the workshop description page when registration opens. Instructions for payment will be emailed shortly after. Registration does not guarantee a spot, confimation will follow within one week.

Registration will open approximately 60 days before the first class starts.

While workshops are offered free of charge to members in good standing, a fee will be charged for each workshop. This fee will vary for each workshop, and includes all handouts and some materials. Please note we are unable to provide shared food or drink at this time. Alternatives may be provided. We are unable to waive this fee for any reason.

We are unable to refund fees except in the case of an emergency.  However, fees are transferable.

Cancellations will allow us to fill spots from the waitlist, if we have one.  Please give us as much notice as possible if you must cancel, however there are no guarantees we can fill your spot.

You may register for more than one workshop, if others are offered.  Your acceptance of your first workshop will be confirmed as soon as your payment is received. Please note if there is a prerequisite for a class or advanced skills, you may not be able to take the workshop. Details will be provided in the class description.  You may be put on a waitlist for the second workshop and will receive confirmation of your place in your second preference 30 days before the start of the workshop.  We are trying to allow as many people as possible access to at least one workshop. Please note that you may not be accepted into a workshop due to other considerations.

The workshop fee for non members is an additonal $50, plus cost of class fees, as noted above. Participants are expected to follow our guidelines: 

  1. Workshops start on time. Arrive early to be prepared.
  2. No perfume or scented products.
  3. NO VIDEOS. Photographs may be taken with instructor’s permission.
  4. Be mindful of instructor’s time; no chatting during lectures, etc.
  5. Mobile phones turned off or on silent/vibrate.
  6. Clean up your workspace at the end of the day/class.
  7. Participants are expected to actively participate in the class.
