The first of several Masterclasses took place on 12th December and was a great hit with participants. Our favourite piece of feedback came from one dedicated Colchester nursery practitioner who came on her day off! ''The best day off I've ever had!" It doesn't get better than that! Participants also enjoyed the never before offered opportunity to browse in the warehouse of sensory treasures. See below for details of our next Masterclass taking place on the 18th January.

This series of Masterclasses represent the first time acclaimed author and trainer Sue Gascoyne has opened the doors of her multi-award winning sensory play company Play to Z, based in Colchester, Essex, to provide a limited number of masterclasses. These hands-on, intimate sessions will enable participants to ask all the questions they never dared ask and discover from an expert on sensory play Sue will also have on hand copies of her acclaimed books in case you’d like to purchase a signed copy.
