If you book a workshop for 6 participants, your registration is FREE!

Generally, TWO HOUR WORKSHOPS cost $70, $50 if pre paid and pre registered a week before the date, $35 each if pre-registered with a friend or for two workshops, and as low as $25 each when you buy a subscription of 10 workshops (20 workshop hours).

Four pre-paid participants are required to confirm the booking of a workshop. Workshops held outside of Anarres Clinic require the commitment of a minimum of 6 participants.

Anarres' workshops are relaxing and fun, and most take place near Anarres Natural Health Clinic, near Ossington subway station. Classes are often limited to six participants so that everyone gets a semi private lesson experience. I generally provide refreshments and a choice of cool crystal water or refreshing tea. There are always goodies to take home, as well as new found knowledge and skills.

Anarres in-Clinic Workshops are also offered by request, so feel free to ask for one, to book one for your group, or to be put on a waiting list for a particular workshop.

Booking a group:

To book a workshop, I need 4 prepaid participants and a commitment of 6 participants in total. Same day registrations are $70 per participant. If you pre register and pre pay for 6 friends, then the workshop is free for you!

The pre paid rate is $50, but if you organize a group of your friends, or you are a registered charity or non profit organization, I can offer you a special rate (please inquire).

The workshop includes handouts, 2 hours of instruction and a custom sample of what we made for each participant.

Workshops are generally held at the Anarres Clinic near near Ossington subway station. If you'd like the workshop to be held at your location, please add $60 payable on booking.

Rates for off site corporate groups, 2 hour workshop with handouts:

$60 offsite fee for DIY Hands on Workshops, Labs and Demos

$25 per person group of 10 or under, $20 per person group of 10-20

$10 per person materials fee if products are made to be taken home by each participant.

So for example:

Non Toxic Living workshop for 20 participants would be: 20*$20 = $400

DIY Natural Cleaning Workshop for 10 participants would be: $60+$250+100= $410

DIY Natural Cleaning Demonstration for 20 participants would be: 20*20+$60 = $460

Rates are negotiable, and discounted for non profit groups, charities and for multiple workshops. If your organization has a set rate or honorarium for lunch and learns or volunteer or workplace appreciation events or the like, please contact me to discuss.
