What do I need to bring?
We provide all tools and materials for all the projects so you don't have to bring anything with you except a smile.

Do I have to book all 3 days?
Not at all, you can choose how many days you come for: 1, 2 or 3

I want to arrange my own accommodation/I stay locally, can I still book?
Yes absolutely, just book a class only place and we won't book you into our hotel.

I have special dietary requirements and/or mobility issues, can I still book?
Yes, just let us know at the time of booking and we can discuss our accessibility and let our chef and the hotel know.

Do I have to organise somewhere to stay?
No, we can do that for you, we have special packages for those who need accommodation, we have a special arrangement with a local hotel and the package includes dinner, bed and breakfast

Aberdeen is a long way from where I live!
Aberdeen is much easier to get to than you would think, we are 5 minutes taxi ride from Dyce Train Station and 10 minutes taxi ride from Aberdeen International Airport which has links to most regional airports via a number of airlines.

How many classes/workshops will I attend?
We have 3 classes on each of the 3 days, so you can attend up to 9 workshops depending on the length of your stay.

I have more questions, what do I do?
Either call us on 01224 802486 or email us at and we'll do our best to assist you.

It all sounds great, how do I book?
call us on 01224 802486 to book your place, let us know how many days of classes you wish to attend and how many (if any) nights you would like to stay at the hotel.
Tell us if you have any dietary requirements and if you require disabled access.
Have your payment details handy so we can take your £50 deposit over the phone.
