COVID Related Cancellations for all Rockport Based on Campus Workshops

However, we do encourage early registration due to limited capacity. To that end, fear not— should you need to make a cancellation for any documented COVID related issue, and your class start date is at least 30 days out, we will issue a full refund.
We look forward to welcoming you to Rockport, whether for your first visit, or as returning alumni. Join us for one—or more—of these week-long workshops.
