New Craft classes

Hazel Mayow, the Wooden Canal Boat Society’s Volunteer Co-ordinator is organising some craft classes. These may be classes to learn traditional, boat-related skills or just-for-fun crafts.
The first one is an introduction to canal art (or Roses and Castles) and will be led by the very talented Maxine who has recently been working on Hazel the boat.
Her workshop is going ahead this Sunday 29th November, 10am-3.30pm, at the WCBS shop 173 Stamford Street, Ashton-under-Lyne.

Please RSVP to Hazel Mayow at to reserve a place, as we can take 12 people maximum, but feel free to pass this on to anyone else you know who may be interested.

We’re not charging for this one as such, but a donation towards materials would be greatly appreciated! Maxine also says that if you have anything suitable to decorate feel free to bring it. Painted wood, metal or enamel things like camping mugs are ideal, or have a look in the shop for inspiration! otherwise we’ll be practising on card, so could be ideal for making personalised chistmas messages, signs etc. with a bit of practise.

RSVP! First come first served, and if you then can’t come for whatever reason please let Hazel know so she can offer the place to someone else.
