Workshops

I alter lessons all the time and particularly alter them for particular workshop audiences. The specific PowerPoint slides and worksheets etc. for these workshops will be maintained here so the participants at those workshops can have access to those specific versions, without the whole website being cluttered by many versions of almost exactly the same thing.
