Workshops

Our taster classes run for one hour each, leaving you plenty of time for your shopping. It's the perfect opportunity to try your hand at that technique you've been desperate to learn. All materials and tools are kindly supplied by our sponsors, so all you need do is book your place online, bring along your emailed order confirmation, and enjoy the fun. For something a little more in depth, choose from limited space on a two hour class.

Remember, it's cheaper to book in advance rather than on the day. For workshop enquiries please call the hotline on 01903 331013 or email elizabeth@ashdown.co.uk
