Denman weekend

Start date: February 29, 2020

End date: March 1, 2020

Location: Marcham, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX13 6NW

£165 pp. See Caroline for details at Feb meeting.

Costs through from Denman for craft materials, and they are £10 for the willow session and £10 – £12 for glass fusing depending on the amount of glass used. The money is due to the session tutor on the day.

Neither Dance for Fun nor hand bell ringing have an additional cost (no materials used so no additional cost) and if you are on a craft course but would prefer to swap to either of these, please let me know.

Caroline will send a list out later this week showing everyone’s choices.

Caroline will also send out suggested car drivers and passengers, based on the info you have given.
