The location of the workshop is St George Community Centre, Church Rd, Bristol BS5 8AA. If arriving by bike, just use the cycle racks by the centre
If arriving by car there is limited space for parking at the centre so it is best to park in the main St George Park car park, which is a 3-minute walk from the centre
The St George Park car park is accessible off Chalks Rd, opposite the Aldi Car Park.
