SkillfUL Tech Workshops

We offer workshops to help you get started on your projects and introduce you to digital design software and concepts. HTML, Photoshop, InDesign, Excel and more! Find all the details on the SkillfUL website.


Sign up for a one-on-one meeting to get help on your design project. Our staff can help you learn the software and equipment you need to make your project a reality. We’ve helped patrons with everything from websites to logos, academic posters to flyers and other promotional materials. **You may make up to two appointments per week.
