Workshops

We think it’s important to keep on top of things, keep learning and improving.  So we like to arrange workshops for our members.  The really cool thing is that the workshops are often led by other members.  This is a winning solution all round, do you know why?

Well, let me tell you – By asking the skilled individuals in our group to teach their skills to others, they are gaining valuable experience as instructors.  They themselves are building new skills at the same time as they are teaching others.  Pretty smart right?

We try to make as many of the workshops either free or as low priced as possible.  But at the end of the day there are costs involved in arranging workshops.  You can be sure though, that if you have to pay to attend, you are contributing to making the workshops even better, for everyone!

Here’s a list of all the workshops available at the moment.
