COVID-19 Update

December 2020 - The COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to impact our ability to offer all workshops as some of our programs do not suit online delivery. In 2021 we have scheduled workshops that have been in high demand during 2020 and reflect the current needs of our community.

We do not have a planned date for a return to face to face workshop delivery and will continue to deliver our workshops online, at least for January and February 2021.
