  1. Any chance you could record the workshop and make it available (for rent/purchase) on such a platform as Vimeo on Demand?

    • Hi Peter,

      I hadn’t considered it, to be honest. My first thought is that it probably wouldn’t work too well with the way I try to teach, which involves a fair bit of learning-by-doing, a lot of paper handouts and a lot of scribbling on the whiteboard which might not come through so well. I have been kicking around the idea of developing tailored online versions of the workshops though.

      • Tailored online versions would be even better. I’d certainly be interested.

  2. Hi Ian,

    Thanks for the information. Sounds interesting. Do you have further information on the course (ie: How much will it cost?)

    Thanks again.
