General Information

Registration is required. To register for a Workshop, click its “Sign Up” link.

All Workshops are held at 826CHI, 1276 N Milwaukee Avenue, unless specified otherwise.

Each student may only sign up for three Workshops per schedule.

Workshops are so stellar, so spectacular, so amazing...that they fill up oh-so-quickly. We want to maintain the quality of the Workshop and must limit the class size to maximize the attention that can be given to the students.

Filling out the registration form does not mean that you are "in" the Workshop. If you make it in, you will receive a confirmation email from us stating just that. Sometimes, we open registration for a Workshop, sneeze, and find that we have already exceeded our spots. Please note we will waitlist the first five students past the capacity, though we are unable to immediately change the status to "waitlist."


Please give one week to confirm your registration. If, in the odd event that after one week you haven't heard from us, send an email to [email protected]

When you get your confirmation email, write down the Workshop and its dates on your calendar! Parents, then write it on your student’s forehead. Students, write the dates out with your food at the dinner table. It is awful for everyone—volunteer teachers, as well as students on the waitlist—if students sign up for Workshops and don't show.

Workshop Donations

Like all programming at 826CHI, Workshops are free, but we welcome donations to help offset the costs. If you’d like to donate to a particular Workshop, please donate online or make checks payable to 826CHI with the Workshop title in the memo and send it to:

1276 N Milwaukee Aveune
Chicago, Illinois 60622
