Booking Forms go out to members about six weeks in advance of each event. If you’re not a member, but would be interested in attending one of these excellent events, either as a participant or as audience, please contact our Chairman. See our Contacts Page
Alternatively if the booking form is available to download, simply print it out and send with a cheque for the appropriate amount to the workshop organiser (will be listed on the form)
A plea from the Web Tzarina (Caroline Hogarth) – I believe some people have had problems with downloading forms. If this happens to you please let me know so I can help out, it’s probably something I’ve forgotten to set up. firstname.lastname@example.org
For a glimpse into the past, go to our Gallery where various people kindly provided photos of events.

Below is a list of workshops we’ve organised in the past. For older events click here. Whilst we love to tantalise you with the workshop you’ve only just missed, trawling back through over ten years worth was too much misery for one page. On the other hand, if you’d like to fondly reminisce, they’re still there… Of course if you join MEMF we’ll send you all the details in plenty of time and you need never think “if only…” again.
