Try Pencils Afternoon!

Easter is nearly here!

Will you suffer from post-Easter depression?
Will you be stressed out because you ate too much chocolate?

Then why not come and ease yourself back to normality with a ....


SATURDAY 11TH APRIL at St Chad's Church Hall, Roslyn Road, Irby, Wirral, CH61 3UH
1pm to 4pm, tea/coffee & biscuits provided.  

As usual, I will provide A4 cartridge paper, plus coloured pencils by various manufacturers
for you to try out, and a step-by-step project to work on.  All for the ridiculous cost of £5!

By all means bring your own paper, projects, or pencils - and if you wish to use graphite then
 that is fine also!  Bring a drawing board if you have one.

Please let me know if you are coming (so that I know how many biscuits to buy!)

Best regards
