This year we’re devoting a whole day to workshops!
Here’s a quick summary. All workshops are free, but some require you to book a ticket. Just to warn you though, some workshops are running at the same time, so choose wisely. All workshops take place at the Wellgate Shopping Centre, Dundee, DD1 2DB.
