Here is where you will find a list our lessons and workshops that we are hosting during the year. I will update this page when we added new lessons and workshops. Bookings are essential for all sessions and deposits need to be paid on booking. On booking and payment of deposit you will receive the workshop requirements list.  Note: Your deposit/workshop fee is non-refundable if you don’t turn up on the day of the workshop.  Please make sure you know the workshop/classes start and finishing times, so you can get the most out of your workshop time.

We do have a hot weather policy in place, if temperatures reach 40 degrees Celsius or a Catastrophic fire ban day is issued, please contact the shop to see if the workshop is going ahead. Some workshops will go ahead if a special teacher has been booked.
