General Workshop Details

What to Expect

  • Hands on Learning: we operate under the assumption that you only learn if you try. A significant amount of time is spent working on breaking down and rebuilding braillers.
  • Adaptable Curriculum: we allow class participants to dictate the speed and content of the class. Once the basic course content is covered, if everyone is more interested in one sub-component, then we like to increase the time spent on that subject.

Testimonials

"The skills I have gained through attending the repair workshops have allowed me to begin my own repair business in Australia.”

- Chris Papasavva, New South Wales, Australia


"Attending the brailler repair workshop gave me friends on 2 other continents and 10 people from around the US. After returning home we had numerous exchanges through email when people were trying to remember a certain aspect of the workshop or notes we had taken. We supported each other. The camaraderie was invaluable."

- Gina Carr, Illinois, United States
