Optional extra teaching during the week
It is now extended outside of the weekend – Adam will be available for teaching from the Wednesday before (7th Aug) through to the Wednesday afterwards (14th Aug).  Several people wanted to come to the workshop early, and some wanted to stay on for a day or so after, so this way everyone has the option of a whole week, just the weekend or any number of days in between!

As Cwm Maddoc Barns is set up as an AirBnB you can just pay for the accommodation, breakfast is provided.  Over the workshop weekend all food is provided.  Outside of the weekend you are able to self cater, though Kath may well cook a Senegalese dish one in exchange for help chopping vegetable and a contribution for the ingredients 🙂  Soup and bread for lunch will be an option too.

During the week, Adam will be teaching every morning from 10am through to 1pm at a cost of only £40 per morning. There will be a maximum of five students, one place has already gone, so best book soon if you can.
