    These workshops are not organised by this group. The info was circulated here, that's all, I think. It's the New English Art Club, holding the the workshops at the Mall Galleries. If you've not had confirmation from New English, then your email was lost and you don't have a place. Read below.

    I'm a new member. Applied to go on this event. One of the 14 attending. I've heard nothing from Mall Galleries. Very confused. Should I go?

    Ignore this reminder unless they have already confirmed that you have a place! It's been full for ages, and people like me who originally requested places but didn't get a reply, had their emails lost, so no point in going along.

    I tried emailing but it wouldn't work - please can I book a place on the Monday 2nd December one?

  • Jelena K.

    Hi, I'm also interested if I should get a confirmation of a place for the workshop, since I'll have to book a day off work for this.

    Hi Julia, I emailed the mall galleries requesting that a place be booked - should I get a confirmation email from them? Thx, Cheryl
