What's included in the price?
All materials and tools provided.
During workshops and classes we’ll take breaks when snacks and hot drinks will be available, and a vegetarian meal will be provided at lunchtime. Please let me know if you have any allergies or intolerances – and not just food-related, environmental too. If you have a favourite herbal tea or snack, please feel free to bring along whatever will keep you happy and energised! The hall kitchen is adjacent to our workshop area; we’ll have access to the kitchen and I’ll create a dining area away from our workplace. Of course, if the weather’s fine, we can enjoy the beautiful views outside.
