A weekly course, after school course will run, for those ages 11+, on a Monday Wednesday.


Please note that most weeks this class will run for 1 hour, but may be extended to up to 1.5 hours, (at no extra cost), on certain weeks depending on the project we are working on.  You will be notified well in advance. 


Class sizes will be kept small, with no more than 4 children attending each class, so that I can work closely with them.
