At Carnegie we are in the Boyd room, which is on the first floor (lift available). There is good access to public transport and ample parking.

The workshops at Carnegie all cost $20 and must be booked in advance. Photos of the projects are available in Connect. There are always lots of other beaders working on their own projects and there to lend a hand. Workshops are not mandatory.

The workshops at Geelong are more informal, members please see Connect for contacting Roely for more details.
