Programme September – December 2019
The Morning and Afternoon Sessions start again on Monday 23rd September 2019.
They will end on Monday 16th December 2019.
There will be a break for refreshments half way through each session.
Tea and coffee can be purchased from The Coffee Pot in the mornings and will be provided free of charge for the afternoon group.
What will the sessions cover?
Unlike previous years, and following a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decided to run a similar programme for both groups.
It has been customary to regard the Morning sessions as being suitable for Beginners, with the Afternoon sessions being for more Advanced users.
I would hope to pitch the depth to which we go on each topic to the needs of those attending.
Having said this, I would encourage those with very little or no experience or those with low confidence to attend the Morning Sessions.
I have picked out 5 key areas that we will look at.
You do not have to attend all the sessions if you decide that you know enough about that topic or do not need to learn about that topic.
