I am very fortunate to have a loyal and enthusiastic group of people who follow my blog and want to take my workshops. This means the workshops fill quickly, and I know it can sometimes be frustrating to see that all the workshops are full. Here are some tips for getting into one of my workshops for the first time:
• Get on my mailing list. Because the workshops are so popular, we usually give our workshop alumni advance notice when a new workshop becomes available. The more popular workshops often fill just with our alumni, but if a workshop doesn’t fill then I’ll send an email to my general list. There is no separate workshop mailing list. There is only one list, which includes a subscription to my blog. You can sign up for the list on any page of my blog.
• Don’t hesitate! When I do send an email about a new workshop to my general list, the available spots usually fill very quickly.
• Get on the waiting list. If you’re interested in a workshop, but it’s full, first read the workshop description and FAQ page carefully to make sure you have the experience and hiking ability required. Then email Claudia to sign up for the waiting list. Cancellations are common, and even if there are people ahead of you on the waiting list there’s always a chance you might get in – especially if it’s a last-minute cancellation, and people ahead of you on the list have made other plans.
• Persistance pays, so keep trying. We hope to see you in a workshop sometime!
I think the best way to learn is by doing. In my workshops I make sure that every student has the opportunity to practice the techniques that I teach, with one-on-one help from me and my assistants.
I believe in truly small classes, and personal attention. The maximum number of students in my field workshops is twelve, and most have less. And classes with at least six students include a knowledgeable assistant to make sure that there is always someone available to answer questions.
