If you're happy to take a boat to some other islands than Okinawa main island, I'd recommend you to visit Kerama Islands (Zamami island, Aka island, Tokashiki island etc). You can get there from Naha port by speed boats or a ferry. I personally have never visited there but a friend of mine is a big fan of these islands and visits there almost every year. Her pics always blows my mind.

It's a bit too far out from Naha but my personal best so far is Hatoma island. It's a small island near Iriomote island where you can visit by speed boats from Ishigaki island. I didn't need a car in Hatoma as it was so small and I could walk to anywhere.

I'd recommend you to post a bit more detail... what kind of workshops will be interesting to you? Pottery or sports? And where exactly are you visiting?

As for accommodations, I think you should be able to find accommodations without reservation on the very day you visit unless you're off to somewhere quite remote.
I have done that a few times in Ishigaki and Taketomi, due to my sudden change of itinerary caused by a typhoon.

Have fun.
