Monthly Modellers The idea behind this class is that we get together once a month (where possible) and focus on modelling one item, or a group of items together, learning how to look at shapes, and how to use different techniques. Where it can be, the model will be themed to the events happening that month, but I am also open to suggestions of what you would like to learn too. All equipment, materials and refreshments are provided, you just need to bring a box to take your model home.
