Food and drink - have a picnic!
Some props will be provided however we encourage you to bring your childís favourite toy / dress up outfit / any props that you would like to use.
There are plenty of shaded areas in the park, but we do advise that you come prepared with sunscreen and hats.

Bookings are essential and places are limited.If you'd like to book for a date that's not listed we can arrange a private class or group class to suit your needs.
I enjoyed having Anna with the group as we moved through the park - she assisted with subject selection too and colours due to lighting and time of day - pointing out what the problems may be with the selection I had made and why and suggesting better alternatives and providing reasons for that. 4/5 by Debbie PROCTER Beginners Only Group Meet Up - Special Event 13-6-2016
Really good and helped me a lot. I have used Lightroom often but even so found this extremely useful. Picked up lots of new information. 5/5 by Corinne Richmond Lightroom for Beginners Editing Class 23-11-2015
Katie is a very good, enthusiastic teacher and took time to address individual's questions. I'd love to attend a more advanced class now. Nice being in a small group. 5/5 by Kerry Morgan Lightroom for Beginners Editing Class 23-11-2015
