Taster sessions are a great way to get a feel for a certain technique or process.
No previous experience is necessary, just a willingness to come along and get stuck in!
I regularly add new taster sessions throughout the year, so dont worry if the one you want to do isn’t listed yet! Just check back later!
Dry January blues?
