Workshops Day - Saturday 14th July

£85.00

This year will follow a similar format of two sessions of workshops, each running for 2.5 hours, with a selection of workshops to choose from. New for 2018 will be break time talks, this year the theme will be Micro Dairying and Artisan Cheesemaking: from grass to cheese and everything in between.

A delicious lunch of local food will be included in the ticket price as well as camping on Friday and Saturday night. (Anyone wanting to join in with the evening of music, food, story and dance will need to purchase a separate ticket for this via the tickets page, thank you.)

**Please choose your workshops from the lists below and state which are your first and second choices for each session in the comments section when you purchase your tickets, thank you** Further information on the workshops can be found at http://www.meadowconnections.co.uk/workshops
