Interested in trying your hand at something new? We offer a variety of classes—from writing workshops led by published Northwest authors to visual arts workshops led by local or visiting artists to clay studio workshops led by one of our own instructors. Most workshops are open to any skill level, but if not, we’ll indicate what skills may be required.

Please Register Early:  Many of our workshop leaders come to Manzanita expressly to offer these opportunities and it’s important to know the level of interest in order to ensure the workshop will take place. In addition, some of our workshops and events sell out quickly, so registering early ensures you’ll secure a spot.

Please see our refund policy, in the event you can’t make a workshop you’ve registered for.

Now you can also support the Hoffman by purchasing some items online.  Scroll down to the Merchandise section for t-shirts, aprons, and the latest edition of the North Coast Squid.
