In fact, we encourage newer members with interest in faceting to come along to our workshops, where members are always willing to share their knowledge and experience in faceting.

Our Home page has an area called ‘Upcoming’ Workshops, where you will be taken to a Google Map showing the location of our next Workshop.  Also, we provide further details about the coming Workshop on our individual Workshop pages on the top Menu Bar.

WORKSHOP FEES – We charge a minimal fee that helps cover the cost of hiring the hall we use for the workshop.  Doing this helps keep the cost of attending a workshop affordable for those who attend.  Plus, we can keep our membership fees low and affordable too.

Fees include tea/coffee refreshments during the workshop.

  • A Flat Rate Fee of
    $5.00 per day, per person.
