Getting to the Workshop & Where to Stay

The class is being held at the Memoria Technica workshop in the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle Washington. The neighborhood is in the South end of Seattle, so it’s a bit removed from the city. There is a light rail station that takes you right to Columbia City from downtown and other neighborhoods and the workshop is within walking distance from the station. If you are flying you can also take the light rail straight from the airport to Columbia City and downtown.

Pioneer Square is also a great neighborhood with light rail access that is a little further South of downtown.

The express number 9 bus will take you from the Capitol Hill neighborhood to the workshop as well and there are lots of great restaurants and places to stay in Capitol Hill. The number 2 & 7 buses are also viable routes.

I’ll send out the class documents and info before the class. Please get in touch if you have any questions!
