A SERIES of art and crafts classes throughout summer with open days and sales of art work in late spring have been organised at Stanton Guildhouse to appeal to all types of art lover.

Classes run from Monday April 13 to Friday July 3 in school term times and include tuition in wood carving, wood turning, furniture restoration, pottery, stained and fired glass, watercolours and mixed media, quilting and print making. Extra workshops and residential summer schools are run in the summer holidays and a quiet day is run once a month.

In addition there is a rural read book group meeting once a month on Thursdays and literary talks with Angela Day featuring Othello on June 11 and the poetry of John Donne on August 26.
