Monday Workshops

Each workshop is a 2-hour session with an experienced creator. In these active learning small-group sessions, you take part in the creative process. This is as “hands on” as is possible in our digital venue, the RECON Discord.

Your RECON Pro ticket includes 1 workshop. At checkout, select from the 4 choices below, for either the Sunday or Monday session.
