UPDATE 24.11.12- More workshops starting in February 2013 to be announced soon!
For your delectation and delight we've come up with a month of festively flavoured workshops to take place throughout November.
We have projects to decorate the home with or stitched items which could be given as Christmas gifts (if you can bear to give them away after all of your hard work!).
Alternatively, you could consider booking a workshop session as a gift for a friend and treat them to a Cafe Salvation lunch afterwards.
As with previous workshops this year, the sessions will take place at Cafe Salvation, near Ledbury, on Fridays between 10am - 12.15pm.
Dates & topics below.
Sign up now!
