A workshop is a somewhere you go to work on something — something physical like a construction project or it could be something mental like working on your leadership skills.
Workshops are for making and fixing things, whether they're wooden furniture, cars, or mysterious inventions in your dad's basement workshop. A shorthand way to refer to a workshop is shop, as in the shop class offered in many high schools, which usually meets in a workshop. The noun workshop also means a course or meeting at which a work in progress — often a story, poem, or script — is discussed by a group of writers.
