If you are unable to attend and wish for Aylwen to visit you to teach a workshop to your local group, please contact Jane Austen Festival Australia to make arrangements. Generally the fee is $250 day per group (plus $50 materials per person), the cost of return Qantas airfare to Canberra, hire car if a distance from airline hub, accommodation and meals. Aylwen is happy to accept billet accommodation and share meals in a non-smoking household. A series of workshops organised with several groups might enable you to share around and reduce the travel price.
