We always ask you to bring a packed lunch but we provide hot drinks and biscuits throughout the day.
In winter, we recommend bringing plenty of warm layers of clothing, as the studio spaces are cold.
Depending on the specific workshop that you've chosen, it might be useful for you to bring reference images.

Our workshops always begin at 10.00am and you'll be welcome to come in and get settled from 9.45am.

We don't have a dedicated car park but there are usually plenty of free parking spaces available on Canal Street at the weekend.
