Programme for 2013

General approach:

Work on own projects plus (for those who wish to do so) set projects and still life on alternate months.

Still life subjects will be set up on the last Friday of month. Volunteer to set up the still life will be appointed at the previous meeting.

There will be two open days during the year. Dates to be arranged, but probably June and November.

Trips and special events are listed by month.  Watch this space!
