Seminar Programme

The next Seminar will be held on Friday 7th – Sunday 9th October 2022.  We will start with lunch on the 7th and finish at 3:30pm on the 9th.

In addition to the presentations we will be holding a number of  one-slot demonstrations running alongside the presentations and masterclasses where attendees can learn specific techniques.  If oversubscribed, there will be a draw for masterclass places . Masterclass booking forms will be sent out with the booking confirmations.

Friday night will include a free fun event for attendees, followed by an opportunity to chat in the comfortable bar area.  On Saturday evening we will have an informal dinner followed by presentations and the auction which raises funds for our development and grant activities.

There will be a great selection of traders, some new faces and of course, the ever popular Instant Gallery from which we’ll be choosing 50 or 60 pieces for our travelling exhibition.
