Wednesday Night Workshops

Wednesday Night Workshops 2020

Welcome to this section of our website which details our Wednesday Night workshops. These evenings are supplementary to our usual Monday evening meetings and are aimed at members (and non members) who want more hands on training and discussions

Although the club is not an educational establishment we recognise that many of our members are looking to better their photography through more detailed interactions and training opportunities. These sessions are run by our more experienced members who give their time freely for the club. A small charge is made to cover expenses.

Visitors (non-members) - are also invited to attend in the hope we encourage you to take an interest in our club. A charge does apply.

Booking

Booking is essential. Please email the Club Secretary (Keith Woodhouse) or contact the Membership Secretary (Pete Chilvers) with your name and details of the training session you want to attend. If you are able to call into the club and pay in advance that would be helpful, if not you will receive an email response detailing bank transfer details or an address where to send a cheque. Thank you.

All sessions run from 7:30pm - 10pm (coffee break included) and are held in the 'back room' at our hall in Copythorne. (Do not use the front entrance but make your way around the back to the 'kitchen entrance'. Thank you
