The Kitchen 'Draw' 

Introduction by Gary:-

Have you always wanted to learn more about being creative? Have you wanted to explore design, but never had the opportunity? Well, I've created a series of specifically designed classes just for you! They can be accessed by everyone and at all levels and abilities. This is for all of you who would like to learn and have a go, and those who enjoy being creative but would like to become a little freer and more open to some new ideas.

If you love, colour, doodling and playing with scraps of paper, cloth, and ephemera then you are really going to enjoy your time on Gary’s 90-minute Art & Design classes. This 'ticket' is for ALL THREE classes which take place on 3 x separate evenings in February, March and April 2023.

For this ticket you have the first Zoom link, but then the next two Zoom links will be sent to each subscriber approximately one week before each individual monthly class. If applicable, any free pattern, or other information, relevant to this course will be forwarded to you after booking and approximately 5 days before the course date.

The ticket price of £50.00 is based on ONE person attending ALL THREE x crafting classes.

Enjoy Each Of These 3 x Classes/Workshops Again on YouTube!

A link to a recording of these 3 x workshops will be sent to all who buy a live ticket for the Zoom broadcast approximately 5 working days after the event; the video will be available to view for 30 days from the video release date.
