I don’t have any space in my diary to run another! If you’d like to get advance notice of my new courses you can sign up for my mailing list by emailing me at miyworkshop@gmail.com everyone on my mailing list gets priority booking of all my new courses and workshops before they’re advertised on my website. Maybe hear from you soon! Thanks, Wendy
