We hope to be able to get further information about some of these workshops and presentations. Please check back to this page later if you are particularly interested. There will be an arrow indicator of further information against the workshop.

Demonstrations last one hour. Their aim was to offer specific aspects of the work which could help us to understand the body we work with. Their standard was also excellent and for a list of these, click here.

There were also Posters which were presented throughout the three days. A poster was another way to present, through photos, drawings and graphs, a specific aspect of the work which could help us understand the body we work with. These are also listed here.
