Seminar Programme

The next Seminar will be held on Friday 5th – Sunday 7th October 2018.  We will start with lunch on the 5th and finish with lunch on the 7th.

In addition to the presentations we will be holding a number of masterclasses running alongside the presentations where attendees can learn specific techniques.  The masterclasses will be booked on a first come first served basis but will be free of charge for delegates. Masterclass booking forms will be sent out with the joining instructions later in the year.

Friday night will be a free evening for attendees 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 fund.

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.
