HOW TO: Once you add a workshop to your cart (Register button), you have 15 minutes to buy it, after which it expires from your cart. Each class added to your cart has its own timer.  After 15 minutes, the item (a seat in a workshop) in the cart expires and is added back to inventory, making it available to other shoppers.

Therefore, as workshop seats are added to individual shopping carts, the number of available seats gets reduced to avoid oversale of classes.  

Please refresh often to see current availability, because shoppers decide not to complete their purchases. A workshop showing SOLD OUT at 8:05am, may have a seat available at 8:07am, depending on the expiring items in everyone's shopping carts. Click REGISTER and that seat gets reserved in your cart for 15 minutes.
