All Ready For Our Impending Workshop....Looking Forward To It!

Both the 1/12th scale and 1/24th scale little herb garden side by side.
All is now ready for our workshop at the end of next week...Saturday 27th September. If you have booked a place to come, please read below....

"Down The Little Old Herb Garden Path Workshop" 
is taking place on Saturday 27th September in the Conference Room within the Four Seasons Restaurant at Bicester Avenue Garden Centre.
The Bicester Avenue Home & Garden Centre Complex is situated off the M40 at Junction 9, and along the A41. If coming from the M40 direction, you will need to go down to the next roundabout and turn back on yourself as the complex will be on the other side of the A41 dual carriageway. There are at least three different car parks - all free. Lots of useful information can be found on:

To access the Conference Room, walk through the Four Seasons Restaurant - down through the long aisle of food and then once past the food till, turn left and you will see us through big glass windows. There is a much smaller tea/coffee area in the Garden be careful not to confuse that with the much bigger Four Seasons Restaurant. 

The workshop will begin at 10.30am and end at 4.30pm. We shall take an hour's break at lunchtime and it is entirely up to you whether you bring your own sandwiches or have a bite to eat in the restaurant. The restaurant serves hot and cold food.  If you arrive early (the Garden Centre opens at 9.00am), you are welcome to pop in and leave your coat, workshop equipment etc. in the Conference Room with us, then go have a coffee or look around the complex. We shall be busy setting up and will be starting promptly at 10.30am as there is a lot to get through!  

There is ample free parking and lots of shopping opportunities within the complex with  stores such as Hobbycraft, Lakeland, Laura Ashley, Bon Marche, etc. Then of course, there is the garden centre itself which sells a lot more than just plants!

As always, we shall be holding a raffle in aid of Breast Cancer Campaign...with some rather lovely prizes purchased from this workshop venue. Later in the day, as always, there will be a Sales Table with a small selection of our own handmade and vintage miniature items that directly relate to the project which you may find useful.
