Workshops - Common Ground are based in Beverly studios in Bray and have a number of rooms that we use for our meetings and markets. We also run workshops from these spaces that are part of our skill sharing initiative. Some of these workshops are free (with a small donation to CG). If the workshops are not free we try and keep them affordable to members.
We also hold many mind and body workshops, with Yoga, Meditation, Tai Chi, Aikido and many more classes available at reduced rates for all our members – See our practitioners page for contact and information…here.
Payment for Events/Workshops -
Common Ground want to support those using our space to earn something from their skills by providing our rooms at a reasonable fee. However an emphasis is put on providing Events/Workshops/Classes at competitive rates to Common Ground members. Free skill sharing events are also encouraged.
Any financial transactions or bookings for Events/Workshops/Classes are between the attendees and practitioner/teacher/organiser.
A 20% discount is available on all class fees offered by practitioners to CG members.
