Workshops & Demonstrations

We have an exciting array of demonstrations and hands on workshops for 2018. Take a look below to see the variety on offer and get involved. Some workshops can be pre-booked online and links are available here. You do not need to pre-book, but it is recommended as spaces may fill up quickly.

For your convenience, we have listed the workshops and demonstrations in venue order.

FAQ:

Why does it cost more to pre-book?

The extra cost covers the booking fee we’re charged to make this available to you. We think it’s worth it, as by pre-booking you can secure your place on the workshop to save disappointment on the day.
