Tailored Workshops on Demand

Can't see a workshop that interests you?  If sufficient people are interested in the same technique/topic, we'll create a workshop ! So even if we are not planning to offer a course or a technique in the near future, register your interest.  Alternatively with at least 8 of your friends approach the Guild to create a workshop tailored to your interests. What an excellent way to spend time together and create something beautiful from a shared experience.
