Workshops 2020

This year we have a varied programme of workshops introducing different techniques to make fun and functional items for the home and garden. Our workshop sizes are small to make sure everyone gets the support and attention they need in order to complete their project and of course there are always homemade cakes and biscuits to fortify you!

All workshops will be held in Maesbrook Village Hall SY10 8QW which is a bright and airy space with lots of parking.
