email sent. sounds interesting.

Without question an potentially invaluable few hours spent. I have spoken to many that have been to these workshops and used other aspects of the service across the country and they're always dumfounded that not more people abuse the 'free service. Must be an Aberdeen thingo_O

In case anyone is wondering our 'Professional Develoment and Education Officer' Fiona Pilgrim (she's a designer) runs these workshops and not moi, she is very good and knows too much! I may stick my head in to say hi but no more...

part of the problem may be that the workshops always seem to be on a weekday afternoon and many creative types have non-creative working hours to pay their bills and can't get time off to go to these things. the only reason i can manage is cause i've quit my job and will be doing squat that week :)

not had an email back which is a bit pants. where do i go?

We are all grafters up here but your point has been raised. If there was enough interest then the sessions could easily be held in an evening. Not enough recordable interest as yet.
