Workshops Autumn Winter 2019

This year we have a varied programme of workshops making indoor, outdoor and festive items and introducing different techniques. 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!
