Frequently asked questions

What's included in the price of a course?  - Please see the individual course details for the course you have booked for a full description of what the course includes. In addition to this there is plenty of tea and coffee and usually biscuits too! The majority of courses include written handouts to help with the learning process that you can take away and keep for your records. 

What should I wear? - Please wear regular sensible clothes (but not your best fanciest outfit!) keeping in mind courses take place in a workshop environment. No open toe shoes or sandals please for safety reasons, (there are heavy pieces of equipment in the workshop). If you wear reading glasses then please bring them along with you as close up work will be involved. No loose long ties/scarves and long hair should be tied up. Dress warmly in winter (it can get cold in the workshop) and dress appropriately in summer (it can also get very warm in the workshop). 


Are there any age restrictions? -  Anyone aged 16 and over can attend independently.  Students aged 14-16 can attend with an adult who is also booked onto the course.  If you wish to attend with anyone under the age of 14 please contact me prior to booking to discuss the suitability of the workshop you wish to book. 

Do I need to bring anything else?- For a longer workshop you may want to bring some lunch with you. Food can also be bought from the onsite cafe Imagination lane. 

Is there parking on site?- Yes absolutely! There is ample parking in the main carpark. Parking is also available close to the workshop if you have difficulty walking. Please contact me if you require directions to this carpark. It does only have very limited space so only use this carpark if you need to

Where are you located? - The workshop is located on Gate farm Rural Enterprise Park on Wettenhall Road close to The Venetian Marina,  about 5 minutes from Reaseheath College and Snugbury's ice-cream. 

What time should I arrive for my workshop?- Please try to arrive about 10 or 15 minutes before the start of your workshop so that you can get settled in, get a tea/coffee etc before the session starts. If you can no longer attend your session please let me know so that the start of the session is not delayed. 

The course I want to do is fully booked, can I go on a waiting list? - At this moment I don't run waitings lists for courses. As all courses are paid for at the time of booking cancellations usually don't happen that often and I find waiting lists difficult and time consuming to manage. You can however sign up to my newsletter where I will share details of new courses when they are added and I will also send out a quick notification email if a place becomes available on a fully booked session. So you will get a heads up before I put a shout out on social media.
