When Country Workshops closed down in 2017, we asked ourselves if the CW web site should be preserved. And if so, how? The answer is Yes and No. We’ve decided to create this Archive that can become a resource going forward.

Learn From Drew

Drew is no longer available for classes or instruction, but along with this Archive, where you can find a lot of useful information, the best way to learn from Drew today is directly through his detailed, published books. See the books below for more information!

We decided to omit the detailed descriptions of our various classes from this Archive. Sorry, but it’s just too much to wade through. and very out of date. The good news is that there are now many good instructional alternatives.
