Workshops are open to beginners and advanced participants. Our workshop organisers recommend you get in early, as workshops fill quickly! Generally places are allocated on a first-in basis.
Workshop places are secured by deposit when booking.
Please note: Materials Fee is paid in workshop to tutor.
Participants should bring their own lunch and cup, unless otherwise stated. Morning and afternoon refreshments are provided.
Workshops are open to non-members by payment of a higher fee. Non-members are encouraged to join the Association. Note that non-members will not be included if a ballot is held for places (when demand is much higher than places allow).
