You will need at least one project to start the course but two is preferable to give you something else to work on while the finish on your other item is drying for example. You will not be able to attend the course without a project and please bear in mind our storage facilities are limited when choosing your pieces. Depending on the scope of your project, it may not be possible to complete it over the duration of the course. You will however be taught the skills to do this at home should you need to. Please contact Andy Hills for more information on suitable projects – firstname.lastname@example.org.
