NMS Classes and courses are open all

(Women are accepted for courses after normal Shed hours – generally evenings)

Course fees are notionally £15 per session, but most courses benefit from a semi-structured approach and fees (stated below) are generally required in advance. Exceptionally, and by advance arrangement depending upon circumstance, payment may be made for individual ad-hoc sessions.

If enough interest is shown, we would consider running elementary sessions for younger members if accompanied by their parents.
