This spring we are hosting The Tastemakers Series, a programme of six webinars developed in partnership with Martin Moore. These virtual masterclasses are an opportunity for you to watch and learn from some amazing experts.
Hosted by Homes & Gardens's editorial director Sarah Spiteri, each session is designed to be really informative and interactive, so we hope you pick up lots of tips and tricks. What is more, the tastemakers will be on hand during the broadcast, answering questions via the chat function, so you can direct your individual queries to them.
The Martin Moore team will also be online during the webinar, in case you want to ask about the stunning kitchens in which the classes are taking place. A week before the session all the information of the materials you’ll need will be available in the event hub, so that you can join in if you wish. If you can’t attend at the broadcast time, the session will be available on demand, also on the event hub.
Tickets cost £10.
