    F A Q

    How does this year’s virtual conference work?

    Attendees register for 5-days of Workshops, where they can choose from more than 70 Live Project/Process-based, day-long sessions.
    The conference will take place over the course of 7 days.
    All live-attending students receive a link to view the recorded video of their registered Workshops *through June 1, 2022. Attendees also have the opportunity to purchase access to viewing additional videos for any Workshop recorded through June 1, 2022.
    Full-week attendees also receive discounted rates on mini-classes and additional Workshop recording purchases.
    *In the event the Workshop does not meet the minimum requried enrollment, participants make an alternate choice.

    When do Workshops begin?

    Pre-conference Tune Up and Mini-classes begin July 2nd. Opening day is July 3rd and July 10th has been designated a Technical Make-up day.

    How long are the Workshops?

    Workshops are offered in 1-day, 2-day and 3-day sessions. Each day is comprised of two 2.5 hour sessions and a 2-hour lunch for a total of 5 hours of instruction.
    1-day = 5 hours
    2-days = 10 hours
    3-days = 15 hours

    Do I need to make any preparations prior to the start of conference?

    As all offerings are virtual, preparing your work area, tools, sound and internet connection (50 Mbps or more is recommended) are the best way to prepare for conference events. Make sure you have the most recent Zoom client update on your device. We recommend using a computer for an optimal learning experience.

    How long are Mini-classes and when do they begin?

    Mini-classes are held in 90-minute or 3-hour sessions and scheduled to begin pre-conference on July 2nd through the week of the conference. Mini-classes are additional to the week-long tuition and are discounted to week-long attendees.

    Can I attend Mini-classes without registering for the week-long conference?

    Mini-classes and Tune up Workshops are open to the general public for a fee. There are 2 types of Mini-classes: 90-minute ($45) and 3-hour ($55). You can sign up HERE for Mini-classes.

    Non-Attendees may pre-order access to Workshop recordings after June 1st.
    Workshop recordings will be available to view after July 12, 2021 through June 1, 2022. Please contact Help@calligraphyconference.org  to questions or to place an order.

    Can Workshops be cancelled?

    Workshop enrollments are reviewed June 1, 2021. Enrollees will be notified if the Workshop did not meet the required minimum enrollment, then required to make their alternate choice by June 5, 2021.

    Workshop Cancellation

    In keeping with the International Calligraphy Conference tradition, if a Workshop doesn’t make, you will be able to make an alternate choice from the Workshop line up.

    In a normal year, registration would have required 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice options.
    You will be able to modify your registration to another Workshop, in addition to having the privilege of access to view the Workshops you sign up for through June 1, 2022.

    Refund & Cancellation Policy

    Balances must be paid at the time of Workshop registration. Allow 4 weeks for over payment processing via paper check. 
    In the event a recording doesn’t render properly, and a make-up session is not possible, participants will be credited for another recording of the same value.
