  1. Thanks Sian. I will come into the booking office. My sister also wants to do the workshop so I will book/pay for her at the same time.

  2. I am keen to book into this workshop but can’t find out how to do it. I went to Register but there didn’t seem to be any way to do this. please help.

    1. Hi Kate – our sincere apologies: we are having a little teething problem with the ticket booking system with this one. As soon as its sorted we will let you know but don’t worry we will ensure you have a place! The other option is coming into our new Box Office space in the IGA supermarket building (open from Friday afternoon) and manually registering? Thank you! Sian (CFF)
