We’re excited to announce some new workshop dates. We are doing things a little differently this time around by asking you to contact the teacher directly to organise bookings and payments. See right down the end of the message for their contact details.
We are so happy to have a new teacher coming on board, the very talented Gretta Brown, and along with our other amazing teacher Lucy Phillips, they will be facilitating a few weekend workshops in the coming months.
