Workshops have always been a part of Zenkaikon, but in 2019 we decided to create a programming track consisting entirely of workshops.

Because they are highly anticipated, most workshops ask attendees to pre-signup to ensure a spot in the room. On Saturday, March 18th at 8:00pm, we will announce the links to pre-sign up on Zenkaikon social media.

There are two ways to pre-signup. It may be via a form provided by the workshop runner, or via our Guidebook registration. You must have our Guidebook app downloaded and be logged in to register for the Workshops that are using Guidebook. If a workshop does not require pre-signup, it will be noted below.

Seating is limited to 54 seats in the Workshop room, and in some cases the number of kits are limited by the workshop.  If there are open seats, you may be in the workshop as an observer.

Here are this years workshops:

Open – There are pre-signup spots available!

Full – All pre-signup spots are taken. Line-up at con for additional spots, up to 54 seats.

Line up only – No pre-signups. Line up in person, up to 30 minutes prior to start time.
