Workshoppers.org is a visual guide to workshops and where to find them. Instead of searching google with vague terms, you can do a narrow search based on exactly what you are looking for.
It’s about finding a truly great workshop experience, not just guessing and hoping.Find whatever you’re seeking, whenever and wherever you're seeking it, and see what others have said about that experience.
It’s visual.Browse through the workshops in a highly visual Pinterest style list and click through when you see something interesting. We want to make finding good workshops as easy as possible.
Both searching for workshops and posting about your workshops is free. This is important because in order to build the world's most complete directory of workshops happening all over the world, I had to make it so easy to upload a listing that everyone will do it, including those with no marketing budget.
It’s focused.Most workshop directories are just a list of workshop producers, leaving the burden on the user (potential student!) to do all the work of finding a workshop that meets their budget, availability, or interest. We choose to break it down by individual workshops so people can really find what they are looking on our site. Yes this is more work for the person entering this information. We think that's ok.
How it Works
To find great workshops:
- Browse the map to find interesting places with workshops and click through for more information.
- Choose a specific category to see a filtered list matching that category.
- Search for a particular instructor or producer that you've heard about to see what they are offering.
- If you've taken a workshop with a certain instructor, you can leave a 'testimonial' that will show on their producer's page so others can learn from you.
- Have limited vacation time? Search by date to find any workshop available anywhere between those dates.
To post great workshops:
- Both Instructors and Producers can post about upcoming workshops
- Just create a profile by clicking "Register" and then choose "add new workshop"
- Fill out the form with the information about the workshop, choose the dates, choose the price, pick the location, and add your URL for more information.
- Tag an instructor or producer and the workshop will then show up on their profile as well.
- Encourage previous participants to leave testimonials on your profile.
About the Company
In March 2010, Workshoppers launched the first draft of our site with limited functionality to validate interest. At the time we were the only site of our kind. We've been improving ever since based on feedback from people like you. Today, you can browse through our growing directory of hundreds of workshops taught by some of the best instructors in some of the most amazing places on the planet.
Workshoppers.org is not backed by venture capitalists. It was built using elbow grease and open source technologies by Kendrick Disch and Filmore Ha while balancing full time jobs and diaper changes.
Based in Atlanta, GA, Workshoppers is building a worldwide community of producers, instructors, and students who love to learn and teach wherever they go.
