Hands on Workshops
The HAuNTcon Hands-On Workshops are designed to teach a technique, in a smaller project that attendees can then take home with them. Back at their own attraction, attendees can use these techniques on a grander scale to increase the effectiveness of their attractions.
Note: A materials fee is required for each class and seating is limited.
