Workshops

I offer a range of workshops on a range of design topics. Workshops can be run in-house, at conferences or as public events.

I can assemble a  workshop that suits the need of your team or event.

Workshops include a theoretical and practical component to maximise learning and come with an extensive booklet and resource list for later use.

Please contact me to discuss a workshop that fits your needs and timing.
