Can I book a workshop now and move the date if I have to?

Yes. We've added dates for workshops for later in the year so you can book your place on the workshop of your choice. If it's necessary to move the date we'll work with you to find a date that suits you.

As class sizes are small, priority for bookings is given to those who booked previously or hold a credit note issued earlier.
