Taff Rocks gift cards


Wait? What? Did we say "Gift Cards" ????

They are an excellent way to gift someone that Mandala Class they've always wanted to attend, or that workshop that all the little ones want to come to too.

Our reservation system explained

Since some restrictions have been lifted allowing the Taff Rocks Community Workshops to re-open, we have needed to implement an advanced booking / reservation system. However, there has been some confusion over this and we hope this post will better explain it for everyone.

This information is related to the Free-Style Community Rocks Painting Workshops (eg. Taff Rocks Tuesday) and not classes and seminars where reservations can only be made for one person on one reservation.

Our Third Trading Post

Our third trading post has not gone without its 'issues'.  It was due for installation in the summer of 2020 but, alas, 2020 was cancelled for everyone!

Thank you so very much!

Knowing the way we share our festive gifts in 2020 was going to be vastly different, Taff Rocks, as part of their "reuse and recycle" initiative, felt it was a great time to ask you to gift us something you might not want.
