Workshops and Demonstrations

A number of free mini workshops and demonstrations will be happening over the weekend. 

There will also be paid workshops and classes with our makers and artists. These will be ticketed and paid for in advance. The announcement page can be found here.

You need to buy a ticket for the event in addition to your workshop cost as these are run and charged by the individual maker, not the organiser.

Workshops will be announced on social media and through our mailing list.
