2013's Eco Workshops provide a friendly, relaxed environment where self builders, renovators and home improvers can speak to the experts. Whether you want to get advice on a 1-to-1 basis with an expert or sit in on a few seminars and simply soak up the knowledge, you should find the Eco Workshops extremely informative.
These Eco Workshops will provide you with the opportunity to discuss the green ideas, designs and plans you have for your home and hear about what else is possible.
