The workshop will be facilitated in English. Participants will need to have a basic understanding of English. However other languages are very welcome.


There are eight places for participants who can attend both days. The workshop is free, but booking is essential. Travel costs will be met for booked participants. There will be a free crèche both days for course participants who have booked.
