Community Fayre: Re-skilling Workshop Programme

We’ve now finalised this year’s programme of re-skilling workshops for the Ealing Transition and Ealing Mums in Business Community Fayre, and it’s looking great!

This year’s workshops include bread making, sewing , paper basket-making, beekeeping,  food fermentation, bike maintenance, food-related fun for children, and carbon footprint and energy advice.

The full schedule is below, it’s probably a bit too small to read, so please click to enlarge it (PDF):

Booking and timings

Some workshops will operate on a first-come-first-served basis (indicated as ‘drop in’); others will require sign-up, which you can do from 1.30pm on the day. You’ll find sign-up sheets at the reception desk.
The first workshops start at 2pm. Workshops last between 15 minutes and 1 ½ hours. Please note that Spelt bread making starts at 2pm and runs through to 5pm but consists of around 1 ¼ hours activity spread out over three hours with breaks.
