What do I need to bring?

We stock all the materials you need and provide an online as well as shop-front service. If you already have materials you are welcome to bring them with you and our teachers will advise where and if you need to supplement them. It is preferable not to go out and buy materials beforehand as they may well be more expensive and not the quality you need.
