Denman Designer Day – Invitation to all members – February 2020
Middlesex Federation is arranging a special designer day at Denman. Initially we planned this for November 2019 however due to limited tutor availability we have had to postpone to next year.
We now anticipate this will take place in February 2020 and it will give you the opportunity to try two different courses.
The day will start at 10:00 am with coffee/tea & pastries, followed by your first workshop from 10:30 – 12:30. After a delicious lunch, your second workshop will run from 14:00 -16:00, followed by tea/coffee and cake, we will then depart at around 16:30-17:00.
We are hoping to be able to choose from two courses for each session confirmed details will be announced when tutor availability is known. Suggested subjects are:
- Silver Clay Pendant,
- Willow Work,
- Upcycling Patchwork,
- Tai Chi,
- Glass Fusing Jewellery, and
- Decorative Paper Cutting.
Full details of the day, costs etc. will be confirmed as soon as possible. If you expressed your interest in attending the November day you will be contacted with full details. If February suits you better and you would like to express your interest or you have any questions please contact Angela at firstname.lastname@example.org.
