Booking arrangements
The simplest way to book a workshop is by email to snazzysstudio@gmail.com with the workshop date in the header it's the number of spaces you would like to book. This enables me to forward a PayPal invoice to you at the discounted amount and payment can be made using any debit/credit card or via your own PayPal account if you have one.
You can also book by phone on 01793 629062 but I tend not to answer if I am teaching a workshop and I do not have an answering service despite the misleading message from my service provider! The number is however a 'follow me' one which rings through to my mobile number out of Studio hours so that is always worth a try as I am often still here well outside normal studio hours. Obviously you can also book and pay for worshops in person at the Studio too.
Remember, if you are a group who would like to book a workshop designed just for you and your friends, or even a past workshop you missed, then just email me with details of the date(s) and project/techniques you would like to do, and we can take it from there. I can also teach groups of up to 12 here on Saturdays/Sundays, or at your venue on an agreed date, again just drop me an email.
Hope to see you in the Studio soon
