Class will be taken by Barbara Lewis an advanced learner and experienced teacher.  Fiona Collins has too much on with young family, day time teaching job, Bìodain;  so we are lucky and thankful that Barbara is taking the class.  If you did Fiona’s class last year, please come to this one;  and if you are a beginner, that that is absolutely fine.  I am confident there will be plenty for everyone to learn, and those who have a wee bit knowledge, can help the ones with less. Please note earlier start time
