Branch events are open to members only and places must be booked in advance. We are however a friendly group and open to new members joining!
Most workshops are held the first Saturday of each month, in Toot Hill Village Hall, near Ongar from 10am-4pm. Please note details on the dates below will change slightly during the year; we will try to keep them up to date here but will also try to notify members directly of any sudden short-notice changes! Please book spaces by emailing Sue O on Treasurer@essexsilkpainters.co.uk
