The club runs training courses on a separate night from the main Club syllabus, one being beginner oriented and the other for advanced members, although you are welcome to attend any workshop regardless of your abilities. There are also other Monday workshops from time to time, dates for these are announced as and when arranged. Full details of the dates and program are posted on the Club website when they become available or see a member of the Committee for details. Advice is always available on an informal basis anytime.
