Julie busy with some last minute preparations for the workshop in her little room above LSA's shop
On arrival at Angouleme train station or Bergerac airport we normally hand out name labels so we can tell at a glance which person is roomed where (but also to reduce everyones' stress level trying t remember each other's names over the first couple of days). However, this year, Carol, our nominated transport manager, had the bright idea of suggesting that each participant make their own in advance of arrival. Little did we think that they would see this as a creative challenge and the results were 100% more interesting than ours!
