Events & Workshops

As space is limited in our programs, CEW requests registration for all programs. Some programs have an associated fee: credit cards are accepted during the online registration and check, money order, or cash are accepted at the CEW office prior to the program. CEW will continue to offer limited workshop scholarships for those who might not otherwise be able to attend. Please call the 734.764.6005 if you would like to discuss a workshop scholarship.
