We know it's a disappointment that Jos's Painting & Drawing classes are already full but why not try out Sue Goodhard's Decorative Arts? She says anyone can paint even if they have never picked up a brush before; there is no need to be able to draw either and you will receive gentle guidance and support.
We were sorry to cancel the Pottery & People, but Roz hopes to be able to offer this course in the spring again. And if you are looking for other crafts we still have Wood Engraving in Chris Pigg's beautiful studio and Steven is back with Linocuts on Tuesdays - you can choose an afternoon or an evening session. Mary also has two Basketry classes, the one before half term is to make a framed basket and, in the lead up to Christmas, she'll be doing some festive willow weaving.
For the academics - and the curious - we have some fascinating new classes:
From Mansfield to Mantel, where Michael Loveday will be taking an ongoing look at literature from the early 20th century to the present day, both celebrated writers and more neglected gems. And Teri Brewer's class 'American Indian Cultures of the Far West' will explore selected American Indian cultures of the far western United States in both a historical and a contemporary context.
Philip is back with the Odyssey, Greek Historians and 'Latin Continued' - so you can be assured of your classics fix this autumn. Or why not try Natalie's 'Italian through the language of Music & Opera' for a burst of musical culture.
