What's it all mean?

Workshop:
All Studio C participants are guided through predesigned material/content around the workshop's topic. This is where you learn new tools to apply to your project. Think "class time".

Open Studio:
An opportunity to connect one-on-one with the Studio C staff and a chance to use the free space for whatever your project requires. This is where you can dive deep into your project after applying what you've learned. Think "open office hours".
