We have had an issue with a lot of people all arriving at different times, which disrupts the teaching, leaves us with less time to teach, and not completing the workshop. Which in turn, leaves us with complaints from people who have arrived on time. So we are very strict with our door closing policy. Workshop duration This is a 3.5 hour workshop.
