BSL for Beginners Workshop – ‘Have a go at learning something new!’

 Today I attended a BSL beginners workshop and it was wonderful.  I was really nervous about going along on my own especially with my limited BSL knowledge but there was nothing to worry about, everyone was so welcoming and helpful and I learnt so much. I’d recommend anyone with an interest in BSL attend one of these workshops and I can’t wait to join the course in September! – Dani

Following on from the success of our last BSL Workshop that ran earlier this month we have added a new date for another BSL Workshop to coincide with the Festival of Learning ‘Have a Go Month’.

This will be our last BSL Workshop before the start of the new academic year so if you’re thinking of starting your BSL learning journey with us don’t miss out on this fab opportunity to meet and sign with other students and tutors in an informal and fun environment and prepare for the start of formal courses or assessments.

The cost to attend this workshop is £15 including refreshments.  For more information, or to book your place please contact Zoe at admin@wdda.co.uk
