Laneway Learning

Our Community Goes Virtual!

With the current situation still developing and social distancing recommended, Laneway Learning has decided to add virtual classes to include some of our community that are in self isolation (thank you for doing so!). You can find all our classes under the tag "virtual" on the home page.

We also want to support our amazing teachers as much as possible during these difficult times. Many are freelancers, artists or casual teachers who have suddenly seen their income reduced or completely disappear. However, they are a resourceful, resilient, extraordinary bunch and have prepared some courses, products or coaching that can be done online.

Have a browse below and feel free to click through to their websites for more information on anything from products and services to workshops and other fantastic events.
