Conducting

This half day workshop uses Plain Bob Minor as the base method for explaining how the derivation of coursing orders can be used to understand how touches work, how standard touches are applicable to other methods, and how the coursing order can be used to check ringing and correct mistakes.

The workshop is open to ringers able to ring touches of Bob Minor confidently, and ideally other methods as well. It is ideal for people who can call touches, maybe even quarter peals, but don’t really understand in any depth what the calls are doing.
