It is important to understand that once you've made up your mind to participate in the workshop for sure, you should have a deposit to pay, which is 50% of the cost. You will receive an invoice soon after registration, which is send to your email address. Since we had problems in the past, people who book and not pay the deposit after one week, will be put on a black list, which means they can never attend any future workshops. Please be mindful of this, unless you have made arrangements for payment directly with me, Johan Jooste.

ATTENTION - BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR PLACE, READ HERE - VERY IMPORTANT
