Entrance is through the white gate next to Horton’s Bake shop and up the stairs. There is heaps of parking in the lot across the road. Many thanks to Peak Academy for hosting us!

Workshops are free to traders, please mail to book any other modules. Non traders are asked to contribute to costs if possible.
I’d dearly love to find some sponsorship so I can take a bit of time to refine, publish and write more. These cost me about R50 per child or R1000 per event. Any contributions are most welcome.
