Class Time

Classes begin promptly so please arrive 10 mins prior to class commencement so as not to miss out on any of the fun! Our workshops specialise in participation and everyone getting involved, so to ensure you achieve the most out of our classes we advise you to bring some necessary items.

Things to bring with you (If you have but don’t stress as we sell most of the stuff anyway)
