In addition to massed ringing, full delegates will have the opportunity to attend multiple workshops. Each of the IHC member countries were invited to contribute workshop topics and presenters, and we are excited to be offering a wide variety of sessions on both handbell-related and cultural topics.

By clicking on the image above (“IHS2016 Workshop Descriptions, Clinicians & Schedule”), you can access a full listing of the offered workshops, their descriptions and presenters, and their scheduled times.

As soon as registration for workshops becomes available, an announcement will be made both here on our website and on our Facebook page. Each delegate will also be sent an email inviting them to select their workshops by accessing their registration profiles and submitting their choices and a few other final registration details like selecting T-Shirt sizes, choosing to purchase the optional group photograph, and purchasing extra banquet tickets. You can find the link to access your profile in your registration confirmation email – if you no longer have your confirmation email, please contact our Registrar, Annie Hergott at hergott@shaw.ca, who can re-send the link.
