How to get into a FULL workshop

How do I know which workshops are full?

The workshops page is updated weekly to show which workshops have filled. When you register, you may discover that some workshops have filled since the webpage was updated.

How to change to a new workshop

Follow the directions for modifying your registration

How to change your workshop after the Gathering has begun

You can change your Virtual Gathering workshop after the event has begun, but only to a workshop that allows part time attendance. You can use the process above to modify your registration. 

If you need help, we have a Workshop Committee volunteer on call to assist you. 

I can’t find a workshop in the registration form

Workshops which are full do not display in the registration form.

Workshops which are not open to your age group do not display on the registration form.

If you are registering after the Gathering has begun, only those workshops that are open to you will display.

How to get into a FULL workshop

Because we offer many workshops at the Gathering and because we have a small staff, we are unable to maintain waitlists for workshops. Here is how to get into a currently Full workshop:

Monitor the Gathering workshops webpage. When the workshop you want no longer shows as FULL, follow our directions for modifying your registration to go in and switch your workshop. You can also email or call Gathering staff to request a change. We will then get back to you in a couple days to confirm whether or not you have been moved into your desired workshop. (Because workshop assignments are not instantaneous, if the web shows that a workshop is not full this does NOT guarantee that there will still be room open for you when you enter your registration or contact us.) 

Why aren’t there waitlists for workshops?

The Gathering offers many dozens of workshops at the Gathering and, because we have a small staff, we are unable to maintain waitlists for workshops.
