So, a few weeks ago I spoke about the workshops that run all the time. But, if you’re looking for something a bit special then today I’m here to show you the other workshops we hold. All mean you can get in touch with your creative side and learn a whole load of new skills. What could be better? All of these workshops are happening from September so hopefully this will give you a little food for thought and you’ll be able to book well ahead to avoid any disappointment.

One of our most popular workshops which are held a few times a year are the Digital Photography Workshops led by Tina Walker. There are three parts to these workshops and all work together to make you the best photographer you can be with all the knowledge you could need to take beautiful pictures with your camera.

Workshop One is aimed solely for beginners and helps you learn the setting of your camera so you can gain the most from your equipment and the light available to you.

Workshop Two is aimed for improvers and people already with that basic knowledge. This one helps you understand more about light, composition and landscape.

Workshop Three focuses on portraiture and uses all your prior knowledge to gain the most from your photos. You also learn more about studio lighting.

Dates for your diary: 26th September, 10th October, 24th October.

What time does it run? 10am-1pm.

Cost? £35 per person/ £28 if you book onto all three workshops.

The Willow Bird Making Workshop is another really popular workshop and one which people have only great things to say about. Alison Walling helps you to create these fun and quirky chickens or pheasants out of willow. This is a great introduction to random weaving and you can a cute little chickie out of the whole thing.

Date for your diary: 19th September.

What time does it run? 10am-4pm.

Cost: £52 which includes all your materials and tools.

The Willow Wreath Making Workshop is a brilliantly festive one to end your rather cold November. This is also run by Alison and allows you to make your very own wreath using Lincolnshire willow into the classic wreath circular shape or even into a heat or star. Then you have the option to decorate as you wish. You don’t need any experience just a lot of enthusiasm and I’m gathering a hint of the festive spirit.

Date for your diary: Saturday 21st November

Cost: £52 per person which includes all your materials and tools.
