Workshops are very popular and bookings are made on a first come first serve basis and so to avoid disappointment book early.
The workshop is fully booked?
Workshop leaders can add you to a waiting list in case of a cancellation or to a reservation list for a future workshop.
I have booked into a workshop but am unable to attend?
The workshop leaders have cancellation and refund policies, which we advise you to read prior to booking and are available on the artist's websites, as are their details so that you can contact them directly.
Workshop leaders take their own bookings and payments are made directly to them.
How do I book a workshop?
After clicking on the Book & info button for a specific workshop you will be taken directly to a page with a Book button, which takes you directly to an email address, website, contact page or to message via a social media page. You can also find a phone number on the artists website if you wish to contact them directly.
I would like to contact the Workshop Leader?
Contact details are available on their website.
Is lunch provided?
If lunch is provided by the workshop leader it will be stated in the 'About the Course' details. You are welcome to bring a packed lunch or order a lunch on the day from the Hearth Café, which will be served in the Hall where the workshops take place. The Café offers vegetarian, gluten and dairy free.
Where do workshops take place?
All classes take place in the Hearth Hall which is an attractive light and airy space, with an accessible WC and level access.
Where can I park?
There is a small, free car park behind the Hearth: look out for the turning just beside the Cafe. There is also free parking along the road. Please don't park in the Lion and Lamb car park as this is for their patrons only.
