Tickets - £12 (non-refundable, make cheques payable to ‘Virginia Woolf Society’), available from Stephen Barkway, 106 Gloucester Road, Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey KT1 3QN, will include the lunch and a drink. Please book by 20 June 2017.

Events and Workshops

From bookbinding to felt crafts, we like to help people learn new skills, try new crafts and enjoy just plain making things.

We have learned wreath-making with Brighton experts; pondered Socrates and his philosophy with a university professor; and created wonderful collages with artist Jane Robbins.
