The new creative writing course in Selston, taught by Mike Wareham, has gone down so well that we thought we’d run another one. This time it will be on a Thursday afternoon from 1.30pm-3.30pm. It starts on 5 May, for 10 weeks, and if you’re keen to join it might be worth booking a place to make sure you’re not disappointed – so give the centre a call on 01773 864 510.
As well as Creative Writing, another new course that has gone down well this term is ‘Exploring Art Techniques’ with Margot Shores on a Wednesday evening. Margot will be runing another course, called ‘Developing Drawing and Painting’, from 6pm-8pm starting on the 4 May. The course will run for 8 weeks and offers anyone with an interest in developing their practical art skills, whether they’re experienced or not, a chance to do so in a friendly and supportive environment. So why not give it go? Again, you can call the centre on 01773 864 510 to book yourself a place.

The first session of a ‘Drawing & Painting’ class at the Watnall Road Community Centre in Hucknall got off to a great start this morning when 16 people turned up to enrol. Tutor, Rob Bellamy, first ran the course last year and has been working hard to promote adult learning in the Hucknall area ever since.
The unexpected popularity of the Tuesday morning class is a nice problem to have – and the good news is that thanks to the flexible way the WEA and its tutors can work, an additional class is going to be run at the same centre on a Friday so that the budding artists can be spilt between two courses. This will allow Rob to have two separate and more manageable groups and will allow the learners to take their first steps into adult learning in a smaller and more supportive environment.
