and an element of competition into the activities.

The majority of our workshops will last around 1 - 1 1/2 hours with the exception

of block printing sessions which will take up to 2 hours.

Workshop prices range from £30 - £100 per person and are tailored to

groups and activities.

 

To note that our workshops are best suited to small groups (maximum of 20)

and all materials will be sent out a few days in advance.
