WORKSHOPS AND COURTYARD EVENTS

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.
