What kinds of 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.
