Cothrom will be hosting Taster Session events in November to celebrate Adult Learning Week Scotland 2019
We are holding 4 classes from 11:30 - 13:00 on the 11th - 14th of November, each day we will hold a different class for either Textiles, Gardening, Digital Skills or Creative Writing. The aim of these taster sessions is to introduce people to new learning opportunities and to develop new skills. You will also have the chance to learn about what else Cothrom has to offer, for example we also provide employability training, modern apprenticeships, SQA courses and woodwork classes.
If you are interested or have any questions, please get in touch with Charlotte at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01878 700910.
See the poster below for dates for each session and if you would like to attend could you please get back to me by Monday 21st October.

The Mentorprise Maker's Forum is a network of Uist makers and producers brought together by the Cothrom Mentorprise project with the aim of making connections between producers to improve the sustainability of their craft.
In the past we have had informative talks on marketing and product design by Robin of Hebridean Candles, and on setting up a social enterprise by Sarah MacLean, of Bùth Bharraigh - to which we also made a site visit. Recently, we made a site visit to Uist Wool where we learnt about the process of turning sheep's fleeces into artisan yarn, and to the Grimsay Community Association at Ceann na h-Àirigh where small producers are able to stock their products.
The Mentorprise Maker's Forum was created for makers and producers who are often sole traders as an opportunity to meet others in similar positions to share their experiences and support. If you would like to sign-up for any future talks, workshops, or site visits - please don't hesitate to get in touch with Project Lead Fiona Bateman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
