Community Education at the Marlborough School, Woodstock

Our next day of Saturday workshops on 24th November is always our most popular with many people using it to prepare for Christmas. Our sewing, wet felting, beaded jewellery and herbal classes all focus on making festive gifts, and you can learn how to make an alternative Christmas dish using ravioli on Italian cookery.

A very personal present would be learning how to give a relaxing aromatherapy hand and arm massage, or a reflexology treatment: our experienced tutors will teach you how at these two classes.

Staying on the relaxation theme, come along to Aroma yoga: a 90 minute class enhanced with the application of aromatherapy oils, or practise your yoga headstands with Janice Hellens.

We also have drawing, African style drumming, archery for all the family, and iPad/iPhone for improvers.

We still have places on some of our weekly courses:  singing, badminton, yoga, home herbal, and Zumba Gold. You pay a pro-rata rate if you join mid-way through the term.

Please check availability on our website or call the office for more information, or to book a place. We look forward to seeing you.

The Oxfordshire Performers Club

A Performers Club has recently been set up for adult amateur musicians who are seeking opportunities to perform in a friendly and supportive environment.

The Oxfordshire Performers Club, which meets at various Oxfordshire locations every 6 weeks or so, is for players and singers, at any level and with any instrument, who want to gain experience and confidence at performing, without the pressures of a formal concert. Players perform to each other, friends and family, and can perform all or just part of a piece.

The Club welcomes learners who can try out their pieces at the Club before their examination. We also welcome experienced players who simply lack sufficient opportunities to perform. Some very experienced players try out pieces at the Club first, before performing them at a formal concert.

Come and join us, either as a performer or a listener. Our next concert dates are at 3pm on September 9 th , October 21 st and there will also be a date in November. More information, including about the venue, can be found on the website and the Facebook page, or email oxfordshireperformersclub@hotmail.com
