*Updated (5/24/21 8:52 am): I was alerted about a purported copyright issue on another post where I used an image from a BVVG Facebook post. To ensure there aren’t any issues here, I removed a photo initially posted to illustrate each workshop. (For simplicity, took down the image from the SOLF flyer as well.)
