Frequently Asked Questions

What workshops do you offer?

Our custom workshops are based on your desired time frame. We can do a super quick one-hour overview, a partial day, full-day, or multiple days. Longer workshops include deeper dives into exercises and one-on-one feedback. We also offer public workshops that you can sign up for throughout the year.

Where are the workshops located?

We can host the workshop virtually over Zoom, in our inspirational Chicago studio (with wall-to-wall whiteboards!), travel to you, or work with you to find the perfect venue.

What’s included in the workshop?

Our workshops all include an instructor who is an expert in the field of visual note-taking. The instructor will cover the fundamentals of visual note-taking through hands-on exercises and give feedback to participants on their work as they layer on new skills. We also offer an Ink Factory sketchbook as an optional add-on for each participant to take home after the workshop.
