Workshops

Workshops are a chance for you to create something new, whether it be a robot, a social media strategy or a pumping electro beat. You may be lstarting from scratch or applying old skills in a new way, but in either case you’ll have something unique to show for it at the end of a workshop.

Upcoming induction sessions are listed below. For a reminder when inductions open, sign up to The Edge eNews.
