Following the upheaval of 2020, we have decided to do things a little differently next year with our workshops calendar.
Due to maintaining a strict COVID-safe environment for students, workshops will take a maximum of THREE students at any one time, in a semi-outdoor area in a beautiful garden setting.
Rather than offering pre-determined dates for workshops, we are inviting you to choose the workshop of your choice from the Workshop Menu, and then contact us to book your preferred date.
Workshops are available to book Thurday - Saturday most weeks, and if you bring a friend or two you an enjoy a 10% discount off your booking fee. Unless otherwise arranged, workshops run from 10am until 3pm, and are for up to three students, to allow for individualised tuition.
The new Workshop bookings format will commence January 11, 2021 - but you can book in advance for next year now if you like :) Gift Vouchers are also available on classes - so if you have a loved one who would enjoy a workshop as a Christmas or birthday gift, please get in touch!
