We’ve added a sneak preview of 2019’s workshops to whet your appetite, but I’m afraid you can’t book those yet!

If a workshop is listed as being FULL, we are happy to take names on a reserve list, so if you’re interested please let us know.

Please could all workshop attendees arrive in plenty of time to help set up the hall, and stay behind to help clear up.

Refreshments are provided in all workshops, but please remember to bring your own lunch.

All workshops must be paid for in advance.

Cancellations: refunds are only available if we are able to fill your space. Sorry, but we still have to pay the tutor and venue.

Please also see notes on the booking form.
