Audio Visual Workshop

Audio Visual Workshop

Audio-Visual Workshop

So you are thinking of attending our AV Salon Presentation Evening - why not add to the enjoyment and join our Workshop on Saturday afternoon before attending the Presentation Evening.

NOTE: The Presentation Evening will be showing the award winning audio-visuals from the Tauranga AV Salon. It is expected that some of the AV's being shown will be from overseas entrants and therefore not likely to be seen elsewhere in NZ.

Right, back to the workshop.

This will be split into three sessions and is open to anyone interested in learning more about the creation of audio-visual sequences.

The workshop will be held at the Arts and Crafts Centre , 177 Elizabeth St West Tauranga. For more information about the location - click here.
