Saturday Workshops 2016

I am delighted to announce the next group of Saturday workshops which will start in the New Year. The format will remain the same, all workshops run from 10.00 until 3.30 with a break for lunch. I will demonstrate a step-by-step project on the big screen and provide templates and details of the subject in the week beforehand. The venue is St. James Church Barn, Church End, Biddenham and there is parking and disabled access.

Each workshop costs £25 (£35 for life class) and can be booked in advance by paying a £5 deposit. This deposit is fully refundable or transferable if notice is given within 7 days of the workshop date. There is a maximum number of places on each workshop so please book early to avoid disappointment.
