Update (7/21): Oh, dear...Someone has pointed out that the actual web site for the workshop notes that it is "closed." Obviously this is a popular topic. It is suggested that those interested contact Solveig DeSutter at SAA to see if they will run the workshop again.

This workshop is now listed as closed on the SAA website.

Martha is an amazing instructor who teaches other workshops throughout the year. Those interested should contact Solveig DeSutter at SAA to see if there is enough interest, they could run it again.
