About our workshops

We’re currently running our workshops as virtual sessions, which take place via Zoom. We do look forward to being able to offer in-person workshops again in the future, once it is appropriate to do so.  

Many of our workshops are tailored to different child age groups, particularly younger children. We also run a series of general workshops appropriate for parents of children of all ages.

We add new workshop dates all the time, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for, please come back soon.
