next workshop

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

The next WF workshop, the last of the 2009 / 2010 is an extended workshop from 4 to 7 with a slightly modified format in order to incorporate a birthday celebration for Jennifer Pike, as previously announced.

If you are coming, we ask you to turn up on time, 3:30 for 4:00, and not any time later, so as not to disturb the workshop. There is no separate performance. 

 The workshop is intended, though a celebration too, as all our workshops are, to be low key. It will have a changing format this time; but it is one thing

All who support the aims of the workshop are welcome. Bring material to perform and please be on time

Jennifer Pike Cobbing

Monday, June 7th, 2010

10th July 2010 is the last workshop of the 2009 / 2010 season after which we are excused poetry for some weeks. It is also just before Jennifer Pike’s 90th birthday; and one of the things that we hope to do on that day is to wish her a happy birthday.
