Workshops

I did announce a few changes for this year to the programme but have not been able to implement them yet as I have had customers book onto one or two of them before the changes. There fore the Powertex and Sewing machine confidence will remain for the time being as it is on the last weekend of the month.  there is still room on both if you wish to book. the Powertex is on the 26th and the Sewing machine confidence the 25th of January.

As some of you who like to attend Alison Hulmes workshop have informed me that it may not be possible I have added a Gelli Plate workshop on 14th March which will be fun but I will not have all the items Alison brings along such as her fabulous Thermofax screens.

This is only part of the things happening at Eau Brink but I think I will leave you for now and then write again soon.
