Wednesday Afternoon

The society organizes practical sessions every other Wednesday afternoon at the T.A.A.G. centre in Teignmouth. We use the studio space to explore different topics each session, under the guidance of an experienced fellow member. These sessions run from 1400-1600 and cost £2.50 per session for members. Non-members are also welcome for £3.50 per session.
