Some of the studios and shops at Maws provide classes and workshops.  There is a wide range to choose from and if you don't see what you are looking for please ask at the shop.  Many more courses can be put on and tailored to suit your requirements.  There really is a lot more than you first see at this `crafty little secret in the Gorge'!
