The purpose of this thread is to try and figure out what workshops to offer in 2014 and 2015. We do not have the infrastructure at this time to offer them all.

If you can attend just one (cost of workshop (or work trade), airfare, etc. and/or time constraints or whatever reasons) then please do a thumbs up just once on the one workshop that you want the most.

If you can attend three, then please do a thumbs up on three.

If you cannot attend any, then please do not do a thumbs up on any of these.

For people that need it or don't, we do heaps of work trade where people come and help out for a week or two and then take a workshop for free or reduced amount.

Please don't reply to this thread. To discuss this thread go here.
