DO A QUIRKY COURSE WITH LIKE-MINDED INDIVIDUALS
There are some skills in life you don’t know you want until you learn them, and Work-Shop courses fall into this category. From welding for beginners to phoneography (how to take perfect snaps on a smart gadget), terrarium making, light painting and more conventional courses like financial confidence for small business owners, there’s something for everyone. The intimate one-day classes are also a great place to meet creative types – although everyone is a beginner, so no judgement.
