The Learning Workshop provides a forum for the examination of subjects that cannot be fitted into a regular meeting night and that will appeal to the non-specialist stamp collector. The prime purpose is to share collecting interests and information on subjects that appeal to all stamp enthusiasts whether established or new to the hobby. The program will be aimed at the general collector and will invite participation from all attendees and will encourage collectors to explore various aspects of the hobby without being overwhelmed by specialists. Any meeting may address more than one subject.
No business will be conducted at these meetings.
