Places are limited: Places are limited (approx 8-10 people per project) and students will be grouped by age/ability. When it comes to offering places we will process enquiries in the order they are received. This is designed as a three-day course and first dibs will go to bookings for the entire three days. (If we are unable to fill all the places we may be able to offer single days at $125 each. Let us know if you only want a single day and we’ll add you to a waiting list.)
