All of our workshops are held at PRO™ Chemical & Dye in Fall River, Massachusetts from March through October. Our building is air-conditioned in the summer months. Our 5 day workshops run from 9:00AM to 4:00PM each day Monday through Friday, with additional time to work independently after the formal instruction.

PRO™ Chemical & Dye provides a complimentary lunch daily for the duration of our workshops. The lunches are not gluten and dairy free. Please contact us for places in the area that you can purchase alternatives.

Workshops are open to all skill levels, from beginner to advanced, unless noted in the course description. We limit the size of our workshops to 14 students, to ensure maximum benefit and personal attention.

Decisions to run a workshop need to be made two months in advance,
so please register early to avoid disappointment.


To guarantee your space in a workshop, the following deposit(s) must be received with your registration.

  • 2 day workshop = $215 - deposit of $100 charged at registration
  • 3 day workshop = $350 - deposit of $150 charged at registration
  • 4 day workshop = $420 - deposit of $175 charged at registration
  • 5 day workshop = $500 - deposit of $200 charged at registration

 The balance of your tuition must be paid 6 weeks prior to the beginning of the workshop. A late fee of $50 will be charged if the balance is not paid on time.

Your credit card does not automatically get charged for the full amount of tuition stated for each workshop, unless you are registering within 6 weeks prior to the scheduled workshop dates. Otherwise only the tuition deposit will be charged, once we process your registration. Please Note: No discount can be applied to the registration of a workshop. Thank you for your understanding.


If you cancel from a workshop up to 30 days before the beginning of a workshop, you will receive a full refund of all money paid at that time, minus a $50 cancellation fee. If you cancel from a workshop within 30 days of the scheduled workshop dates, you will only receive a 50% refund of your paid tuition as a credit on file for future use, as long as we fill your spot with another student from our waiting list. If there is no one to fill your spot, then unfortunately we are unable to apply any credit on file.

PRO™ Chemical & Dye reserves the right to cancel a workshop without sufficient enrollment two months before the scheduled date. If you have registered for a workshop that gets canceled, you will receive a full refund of your tuition deposit. Please register early to avoid disappointment!


If you are flying: T. F. Green Airport in Providence, RI is the closest to out facility in Fall River, MA with about a half hours drive. Logan Airport in Boston, MA is not as easy to get in and out of as Providence and is about an hours drive depending on traffic.
