DB/SOB Joint Workshops update
As you might imagine, the start of the Joint Workshop series has once again been affected by current restrictions and we’ve had to cancel both Kathy Abbot’s workshop in February and Anne-Marie Miller’s in March. Sadly these are workshops rescheduled from the 19/20 series and we hope that we will be able to re-offer these when we’re running smoothly again. To keep things simple any remaining course fees paid are being refunded to students so if you have not already done so, please be sure to send your bank details including your banking name to me, email@example.com .
This leaves us with a potential start in April with Ruth Brown’s 10-11th workshop on dyeing and colouring cloth followed by Sue Doggett’s creative design weekend on 24/25th.We hope Sue’s workshop can be held at the Southern Bookcrafts Club in Winchester. At the moment Nesta and I are keeping optimistic and we will review the situation in March, if not before. Hey ho!
