Join us

Anyone can come to a workshop, you do not have to become a member. There are some perks to membership though and these are outlined on the Membership page.

We have an exciting range of workshops for 2024. Some will be held in person, at either our Lower Withington or Waverton venues, and some will be presented via Zoom. These will be advertised on the website as soon as details are available.

Please note that recordings of Zoom workshops are only available to those who have booked at the time of the event, not after it has taken place.

If you are attending in person please bring your own lunch and drinks. We are requesting that all attendees bring their own mugs and cutlery. The kitchens will be available to make hot drinks but there will a limit on how many can use them at one time.

There are still some restrictions on numbers. We are limiting the in person workshop numbers to 18 so that everyone has a desk to themselves.

We have completed risk assements for both venues which can be sent to you if required.

We look forward to welcoming friends old and new to these events.

Booking to Attend a Workshop

Bookings for workshops usually open 3-4 weeks before the event is due to happen. Once bookings are open, you can fill in your details on the booking form indicating your wish to pay either by bank transfer or cheque.

If you are requesting to join a zoom workshop from overseas an email will be sent with details of how to pay.
