Workshops

I am so excited to announce that we have TWO workshop opportunities this November 2020!ย 

Both will be hosted at the beautiful Madawaska Kanu Centre (MKC) near Barry’s Bay. They have a large kitchen and dining area where we can easily have personal work stations for learning while following all the safety guidelines. You may even choose to stay overnight the night before your workshop so you are fresh and ready to bake bread!

Please read the COVID19 Response from MKC HERE. You can ignore the on-water instructions as we will be inside most of the time. We will also offer a full refund if the workshop needs to be canceled due to any restrictions on gatherings/workshops leading up to the workshop dates. More details about how the workshops will run will be communicated closer to the date. If you have any questions please reach out to me here: heather@heathershearth.ca

Please read our Workshop Terms & Cancellation Policy HERE.

Please see below for all the workshop details and how to sign up!
