The workshop will take place in a spacious meeting room at the charming and historic hotel, called Upham Hotel, located 2 blocks away from State Street (Santa Barbara’s vibrant downtown shopping and historic district). It is the oldest hotel on the Central Coast. It opened in 1871 as the Lincoln House, operated by the Amasa Lincoln family (a distant cousin of Abraham Lincoln).
