Workshop Policies



Register for a Workshop

You can browse our workshop by calendar or list. Search by topic, instructor, or other keywords, like “locally sourced materials.”

To register through our online registration system, simply click on the Register button at the bottom of the workshop page. You will then be taken to our online registration portal. Follow the steps as directed. Enter all of the required information—we need it to contact you with updates!


If the workshop you want to take is full, you may register for the waitlist.

If a space opens in the workshop, students on the waitlist will be contacted to enter the class in chronological order of registration.

To register for a workshop waitlist, click on the Register button and complete the registration as if registering normally for the course. You will need to enter all of your information. If a space opens in the workshop, we will contact you.

Sanborn Mills Farm Cancellations

Each workshop must have a minimum number of students to be held.  If Sanborn Mills Farm finds it necessary to cancel a workshop, we will notify students two weeks prior to the scheduled workshop start date.

A full refund will be provided to registered students. Refunds for a workshop purchased as a gift will be made to the purchaser only.

Housing & Meals 

Please refer to our housing page for more information.


Each workshop has its own safety procedures. Your instructor will review the specific safety requirements at the start of your workshop and throughout your class.

Sanborn Mills Farm is a rural setting. If you are allergic to insect bites, please alert your instructor of your allergy and bring an epipen with you. For draft animal workshops or courses requiring time in the woods, be sure to review tick safety procedures from Tick Free NH.

We advise students to wear comfortable clothing, comfortable and secure shoes, and consider your personal needs for a day or extended stay.
