We enjoyed ourselves so much at the Rural Skills Centre, Cardiff in March that we are back again for a summer workshop on June 16th 2018. Come and join us for a lovely day in the country at Marshfields, near Cardiff. You can book online through the RSC website.
We’ve planned to get outside, weather permitting so bring suitable clothing.
If you want a taste of what happened in March then read Lorraine’s poem. She came to the course and gave us a five-star review. Thank you, Lorraine.
Horses for Courses
by Lorraine Gray, March 2018
Horses for courses on this countryside farm
Comfy couches, candles spread calm
Rural Skills Centre, the place to learn
Serene settings, logs crackle and burn
Clever crafts – words to read
Inspiration to nurture that seed
I did creative writing with Jacqui and Jan
Can you write? Of course, you can.
Away from the stress this place to create
Hidden tranquillity off the A48.
We left stress behind
Unlocked the mind
Ideas surfaced throughout the unwind.
On arrival we had our fill
Of scrumptious cakes baked by Gill
Banana cake awaiting slicing
Cupcakes with hats of icing
Carrot cake wickedly enticing.
We put pen to paper, read stories untold
Suddenly making words unfold
We strolled outside where snowflakes fell
Inhaling fresh air and the farm’s pungent smell
Badger the sheepdog in slumbered sleep
His sheep had a ‘sheep-over’ perhaps with Bo Peep.
Lunch at one and to say the least
The oak table was laden with a splendid feast.
The venue and course were well above par
I would rate it a full five star.
