We run these courses on a donation basis: there is no fixed charge. We do ask for a deposit of £10 when booking on the course, as there are only four places on each and this makes it less likely that space on the course is wasted. This can be included in the donation or returned if the participant is completely unwaged.
To book on the courses, contact Jane on firstname.lastname@example.org when you will be given the bank details to provide the deposit. Once the deposit is received, we can book you a place. We run our sessions on a “pay what you can afford” donation basis. As a guide, similar courses cost around £40 to £50. However, money should not stop anyone accessing our courses, so any donation, however small, welcome. If the deposit is a problem, say when you email.
