Learn the skills you've always wanted to know. All in one easy day!*
Transition Bay is bringing together a wide range of trades, crafts and
other skills persons to teach their skills. Book this unique event on
your calendar and plan to spend a few hours or the whole day! Each
skills-person will be teaching several times at a table or floor-space
dedicated to learning. Become a 'Do-It-Yourselfer', and learn valuable
skills that you can immediately take home and put into practice.
There will be 3 one-hour teaching sessions in the morning and 3 one-hour
teaching sessions in the afternoon. You can choose to dig deep into only
1-2 skills that are important to you and stay with that teacher through
more than one session, or you can get a good taste of each skill by
attending a greater number of sessions, or even drifting around between
