Experience our Courtyard through a Workshop!

The spirit of The Pelican Courtyard is perhaps best experienced by one of our workshops. Connect with friends and neighbors by attending one of the many classes and speaking engagements held on a rotating basis each month. Our calendar changes frequently and new vendors are always joining our fold! Reserve early - spots are limited to ensure appropriate social distancing.   

Sign-ups are required. You can make a reservation through Seaside Gallery & Goods - either in-store or on the website.

Charcuterie Workshops

Loryn Purvis of Picnic Grazing Co. hosts a rotating schedule of interactive charcuterie workshops here in the Pelican Courtyard. Participants create their very own 10-inch charcuterie board based on the focus for each class which changes regularly. These are a popular draw and classes typically sell out. At the end of the session, all participants will take home their own board to enjoy at home.
