Sample generic budget

Budgeting for your chosen course or workshop


budgetWe appreciate that it isn’t easy to calculate a trip abroad when you have to do all the sums yourself. One of the reasons we decided to leave to you the choice of your accommodation, is that it allows you as an individual to create your own, made to measure, creative holiday. It is certainly not our place to decide what you can or cannot afford!

With this in mind, we have created a table of typical costings so that you can better assess possible expenses during your time here in Venice. Bear in mind that our calculations are based on the actual tuition days and do not take into account any extension you may make to your holiday before or after the Workshop event of your choice. It is also worth noting that the accommodation costs quoted are often for a room or a self-catering apartment which could be shared, and as such, costs could be further reduced for two or more persons dividing the amount indicated in our sample table. Keep your eyes open for special ‘partner’ savings on a course fee — these often offer savings as in our example here where 2 or more people booking together benefit from a 5% discount.
