The Scottish Audio Cooperative is an audio production and training organization based in Ayr, Scotland. They run weekly workshops in audio production, ranging from podcasts to field recording for screen. The cooperative was formed in early 2007.
The summer workshops begin on Wednesday, July 5, 2017. Every workshop will be repeated on the following Monday. The Scottish Audio Cooperative offers additional skills workshops on a Sunday afternoon for a more advanced look into your area of interest.
Your first workshop is free to attend (and you can pay if you like it). Every following workshop is charged at their standard membership rate of £4 waged, £2 unwaged.
The upcoming summer Wednesday workshops include a total of 8 workshops, done in 8 weeks. The Sunday workshops also are offered once a week for 8 weeks.
