What time do workshops begin and end?
One-day workshops: Begin at 9am and finish up around 5pm in the Fall and Winter, and around 6pm in the Spring & Summer.
Mulit-day workshops: Begin at 9am the first morning and run until about 9pm, finishing up between 5pm and 6pm the final day.
Where can I stay during a multi-day workshop, or if I am attending
two or three workshops in a row?
You are more than welcome to stay here on site overnight. There is plenty of room on the property to pitch a tent or hang a hammock, but if you do not have a tent, or if the weather turns cold or nasty, you may bring a sleeping bag/pad/pillow and crash inside the house. If you prefer more of the comforts of home there are several reasonably-priced hotels and B&Bs in Hackettstown, about 15 mintues away. We would be happy to provide you with their information upon request.
Is there an age limit?
Our workshops are for adults only and you must be at least 18 years old to attend. There is no upper age limit and so long as you feel able to participate we encourage you to attend!
Can I bring my child(ren) along if they don't take the workshop?
No, children are not permitted to accompany you to your workshop. We do not have daycare facilities available and even the most well-behaved children need to be watched and tended throughout the day. This results in an unfair distraction, albeit and unintended one, for both the parent(s) and other workshop participants, as well as for the instructor(s). If you feel unable to attend a workshop without your child(ren), there are many family programs available at other schools that will better accommodate your needs. Our workshops are for adults only, and we do not make exceptions.
Q. Do I need to bring my own tools/materials/food
A. We provide all the tools and materials for your workshops. There are occasionally a couple of easy-to-obtain items it would be helpful for you to bring with you (i.e., a knife) however we always have extras you can borrow if needed. As a courtesy, we offer meals during workshop hours, but you are more than welcome to bring whatever snacks or drinks you like. If you have special dietary restrictions (allergies, vegetarian, gluten) you must let us know at least a week in advance. We do our best to accommodate when possible.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are staying for a couple of one-day workshops in a row please be aware that meals are available during the workshop only. You will be on your own for dinner/breakfast and we will be happy to direct you to local food establishments.
