About this workshop

This workshop takes place in the cellar room at Smith and Gertrude, just a short distance from Golden Hare Books. Please arrive to start at 1pm. The workshop will last 2 hours with a short break in the middle. Please bring a notebook and pen or laptop for any notes you may wish to take. You can purchase refreshments from the bar if you would like to, and we'd encourage attendees to stay after the workshop to enjoy a glass of wine or cheese toastie! Please note that there is a flight of stairs down to this basement room and unfortunately there is no lift.

About the venue

Smith and Gertrude

Where to start with Smith and Gertrude...it is a happy place, with wonderful staff, vibes and of course wine and cheese. Just a short skip from the bookshop has us there, where we are hosting all of our intimate workshops for no more than 12 people, as well as exclusive Wine & Cheese Book Groups. All events take place in the basement room, which is a beautiful space but is downstairs and we regret it does not have lift access.

You'll also see the Smith & Gertrude team at their pop-up cafe/bar along at St Vincent's, where you can buy hot drinks, wine, nibbles and pastries. Some of our events even come with built-in breakfast!
