The workshop timetable has been suspended for the last few months due to the threat posed by the Coronavirus. I am now offering those of you who have previously booked, similar dates but just for two students at a time. I will reinstate the programme with new dates from September all being well. Sincere apologies but it’s the responsible thing to do.
These workshops are usually held at the weekends- Saturday/Sunday(occasionally Thursday/Friday) at my studio in Harrogate. If you have a small group of friends that would enjoy a particular class on another date, I am happy to look at arranging this with you. Just get in touch for a chat about your requirements. Thank you.
