Registration

Registration is free, but please only register if you have the intention of attending, as there are limited spaces and last year we had a relatively large number of people not showing up. If you register and find out later you can't make it, please send us an email and we'll give your place to another participant.

PLEASE NOTE: We are very pleased with the large number of registrations, but this means that the workshops are already at full capacity. You can still sign up below, but this means you'll be placed on a reserve list with no guarantee of being offered a spot. If another participant cancels, we will contact you to offer you a place.
