Firstly a thank you for your patience, we still haven't got everything back up and running but we are making progress in the background.
We have also been having difficulty with our phone and answering service for some time with the message recording being a bit hit and miss. What we really wanted was a service which followed us around, and offered an effective answering service, but unfortunately we have had to change service provider to achieve this.
The new studio number for booking workshops etc is 01793 629062 and if there is no one in the studio available to take your call, it will automatically forward, at no additional cost to you, to the studio mobile number where you can leave a message too. You can also book your workshops by email at firstname.lastname@example.org - just tell us the date and time of the workshop you would like to book, the number of spaces you need, and for whom, together with a contact number should we have any queries.
Don't forget you can save 20% on your workshop if you pay with Snazzy Workshop Vouchers (SWV) which must be bought in advance of the workshop you want to use them for.
Now without further ado, if a little later than planned, here is a REVISED workshop timetable for July 2014 - I am returning to the old format for these timetables as I have had so many hitches with the new layout.
