This is the So Make It workshop area, where those offering, and those wanting workshops, can list them.


Trello is used to cover the fine detail, but the basics such as date, time and cost should be listed here for those that don't have access.

Workshops are open to non-members, fees must be paid in advance or on the day.

Marketing Workshops

There's a number of ways to drum up interest and it's recommended to use them all:

  • The Google calendar, ask a trustee for access to create and edit events.
  • Meetup, join the group and ask an organiser to promote you.
  • Facebook Page, message the page and ask to be adminified, you can make an event under this page for ticketing/marketing.
  • Eventbrite, we can do ticketing for paid events here, or just use this to drum up more interest in free events.

I do recommend using more than one ticketing system for free events, it doesn't matter that the counting is messed up, it's just a button for people to click. It gives us a rough idea. Bracken (talk) 14:08, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
