We have had two highly successful drawing classes run by an excellent, experienced teacher,
Mark Lippet. Several of our members have been so enthused that they have signed up for Mark's weekly sessions at Burntwood Library!
I have booked Mark for another session for our U3a on Friday 7 February, 1 -3.30pm. in the hall at Chasetown Methodist church. The cost is £10. In order to cover costs, we must have 15 people. I need to emphasise that this is a commitment and payment needs to be in advance. Once given a place no refunds can be made unless someone else takes your place.
This is open to all members - I know that some of those who have already taken part will want to come again. Please contact me as soon as possible to be sure of your place.
