‘Try This… Dorchester’ is organised and coordinated by a group of volunteers. It has now run for two successful years and is gearing up for an even bigger and better 2015! The aim of the project is to provide a framework in which local residents can offer a workshop on a topic they are passionate about, giving others the chance to try something new completely free of charge.

To book your place on one of the sessions you will need to complete the registration form on the Try This website. The sessions are free but have limited spaces, so booking is essential.
