Hands on Workshops

What is a HOW?

Want to branch out and learn something new? Need a refresher on a skill you learned a long time ago? DCSWA offers a hands-on workshop (HOW) series to help members learn new skills or refine existing ones. Each month, an expert will teach members about a certain topic in a small classroom-style setting. Space is limited and is on a first come, first serve sign-up basis. Most HOWs are free, although some more advanced workshops may require a nominal fee.
