HOW IT WORKS

Membership is charged per four week block starting from your first session in the studio. To become a member you must be confident with the entire process of the technique you wish to use and the responsibilities of being a studio member. For any techniques that you are unfamiliar, you must first complete one of our workshops. Once you are a member you are free to use the studio as much as you like.
