The size of the classes is kept small to allow plenty of one-on-one attention and the maximum number of students for this class is 6.
This workshop include hammering so can get quite load at times.

The entrance through the back into the garden has a 2cm lip as you come through the gate and there is a small step into the workshop. Folding wheelchairs are able to be manouvered in. The jewellery bench is at standing height so a small foldout table can be provided.
