The demonstrations are one-off events for members to just watch.

The workshops involve two Zoom sessions.  The first Zoom session will be a demonstration.  Participants will then prepare their own design using the supplied ‘Materials and Mechanics’ worksheet , take photographs and email them to BB&O Photos.  These will be loaded onto the BB&O Photo Album.  A second Zoom session (about one week later) will be a review and discussion of the designs.

The workshops are currently free.  If you wish to participate please email JDSE Secretary or phone Stephanie Cornell on 01256 881101.

To help participants the following Zoom guide has been prepared BBandO Zoom Guide for Participants
