The Heldeberg Workshop Board of Directors, along with the planners of our educational programs, are closely following COVID-19 developments. Unfortunately, there is a real concern about group gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the Board of Directors has decided, in the best interest of our teachers and students, to cancel our Spring Program. We will refund tuition for all those who have registered for a class. In addition, we are delaying the opening of registration for our Summer Program at least until mid-April. Please continue to check our website and Facebook page for additional updates.

Summer schedules are almost done.  Check out our current list of classes (updated 3/23/2020) –  Summer Schedule

The Heldeberg Workshop is tracking the status of COVID-19 and its health impacts. At this time, we are continuing to move forward in planning our 2020 spring and summer programs. We are currently optimistic that our programs will not be interrupted, but we will keep you updated as we learn more. We expect the state and the county health departments to provide guidance for educational programs such as ours.
