More Computer Friendly Workshops

Computer Friendly is running more of our two-hour interactive workshops on a series of topics to help users get more from their tablets and computers. These will be held at the Quaker Meeting House, Harpenden and in Fleetville Community Centre, St Albans.

At present all face-to-face meetings are suspended, so our workshops will be held online via Zoom.

Introductory workshops, described on this page, are where the tutor will take you through the topic, but won’t be expecting you to do anything active online in the workshop.
