@Bjorn: This is actually an all day workshop, with the lunch in the middle.

I see this continues on the afternoon. Will it be worth it to just do the first part, or are they really tight connected so you really need to to both to get anything out of it?

I imagine there is plenty of room. People don’t have to sign up ahead of time, so there’s no way of knowing how full, but we expect there to be ample space. Bring a friend :)
