After breakfast, everybody reached their workshop.

Monday 08:30: Classes were taken place over 4 days: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from 08:30 to 11:30 and 13:30 to 16:30. Classrooms were spread between the hotel first floor and the building 5th level (this is why the difference between floor and level become so important). In the next pages, we will introduce each teacher.
