Lectures & Workshops

Every month you’ll find new lectures and workshops to engage your interests. All of our lectures and workshops require advance RSVP, due to their popularity and limited seating. A few have a small fee for members and non-members.

You’ll find our full schedule of upcoming lectures and workshops, plus how to RSVP, on our calendar.
