St Mary's Churchyard - next class 9th July

We were lucky with the weather last week and got through the whole class before the rain arrived.  Those with cars got back to them with only a minor drenching... the cyclists amongst us, probably not.

 

This week we're returning to St Mary's churchyard and Rosie will be showing us how to start off a painting of some of the wonderful buildings there.  Not one to miss!

 

Hope to see you there.

Abbey Gardens - next class 2nd July

A few of us made it to Nowton Park and it was lovely to catch up after all this time.

 

Our next class will be in/around the Abbey Gardens.  We'll meet in St Mary's churchyard at 10 am and decide where to go from there.

We hope to be back at Southgate Community Centre sometime in September.  Please contact Rosie to let her know if you plan to come back in September, especially if you're not able or expecting to join any of our summer classes before then.

 

 

Nowton Park- next class 25th June

We're back in action and are going to start with a summer class outside as we would normally at this time of year.  Nowton Park will be the venue, meeting at the edge of the car park near the cafe at 10 am.

 

If more than 6 people turn up, we can split into groups to stick to the current social distancing guidelines.

 

Bring your own chair, plenty of water, sun cream and hat cos it's going to be a scorcher!  Nowton Park has plenty of space and shaded areas so we should be able to find somewhere suitable.  Car park charges will probably apply as they do now in the rest of Bury.

 

Can't wait to see you all and hear your lockdown stories (at a safe distance).
