Seminar & Workshop Information

Photo Feb 06, 10 01 51 AM.jpg

We offer seminars and workshops most weekends January through October. Visit our What's Happening page to see descriptions of upcoming seminars and workshops, which are listed approximately two weeks in advance. Most seminars are free of charge; if there is a fee, it will be listed in the description.

We now offer registration via Eventbrite so you can be sure to have a seat waiting for you! 
Registration reserves your seat. However, please try to arrive 10 minutes early to check in. Walk-ins are welcome if seats are available at start time but we cannot guarantee walk-ins a place at full seminars and workshops.

Note: Kids' Club activities do not require registration.


Read below about how to register, how to cancel a registration, and what to expect when you arrive. 


How to register

There are two ways you can register for seminars and workshops:

1. Register on the What's Happening page on Click the seminar you’re interested in and there will be a “REGISTER” button that will take you to Eventbrite to complete registration by entering your name, email, and number of admission tickets desired.

2. Register on Facebook. Click on the Events tab. There will be an event created for each seminar and you can click to register via Eventbrite.



A waitlist is created if all available seats of a seminar have been reserved. If a seminar is full, follow the registration process above to be added to the waitlist. If a seat opens up, you will receive a notice from Eventbrite and you will be able to register for a seat. You will have one day after you receive the notice to complete your registration.


How to Cancel registration

We appreciate it when you update your order if you're unable to attend so that others may have the opportunity to do so. Thank you! 

Note: The option to cancel will only appear on the Eventbrite website, not the mobile app. However, you can go to the website on both a desktop and mobile device.

  1. Log into

  2. Go to the Tickets page

  3. Locate and click your order to view order details

  4. Select "Cancel Order"

  5. Eventbrite will send an email to confirm the cancellation.

If for any reason you are unable to cancel via Eventbrite, you can email



We ask that anyone who did not register (including those on the waitlist) to visit the seminar check-in station anytime up to 30 minutes prior to the seminar start time where we will add your name to the walk-in list. Priority seating remains for registered guests, but if there are available seats at the start time, you will be able to attend.


What to expect when you arrive

Please try to arrive at least 10 minutes early. Speakers will begin the seminar at the scheduled start time. 

You will be able to check-in and be seated beginning 30 minutes before the seminar start time. A Swansons employee will greet you, check you in, and provide you with any seminar informational handouts. You do not need to bring a registration confirmation or printed ticket - we have your name on a list!

Note: For everyone's comfort in our seminar room, it is not recommended to bring pets to seminars and workshops. Thank you. 

Our Seminar room is located in the Conservatory, near the cafe and koi ponds:
