On the Drawing Board

  1. Do you have a more exact date than January? I would really enjoy this.

    • Tom Richmond says:

      I’m leaning towards Jan 13-15th. Most of those on the waitlist are flexible on that weekend or the 27th-29th.

  2. S. Vio says:

    Please Let me know if and when this is happening. ?

    • Tom Richmond says:

      This is definitely not happening. I actually had a few cancellations to the original workshop so several of the waitlisters ended up getting spots on that one, and I now have only a couple of people on the waitlist. Not nearly enough to do a second workshop. Sorry.
