KORA WORKSHOP IN THE UK
I’m looking into running a workshop in the UK and have a potential venue. But before moving forward I’d like to gauge interest. Details as follows:
Two-day weekend kora workshop.
Venue: Wiltshire Music Centre in Bradford on Avon.
A purpose built music centre. There is plenty of free parking at the centre and a well-connected train station nearby.
Times: 9.30am -5pm
With a 2 hour break for lunch / personal practice
Cost: £200 for the two-day weekend workshop.
If you do not have your own kora I’m able to provide koras at a cost of £50 for the two days.
In terms of accommodation, there is The Castle pub close to the music centre, as well as other accommodation in Bradford on Avon. Staying in Bristol or Bath would also be an option:
Trains from Bristol to Bradford on Avon are about 30mins. Drive is 40mins.
Trains from Bath to Bradford on Avon are 15mins. Drive is 15mins.
As I say I’m trying to gauge interest before moving forward with this workshop so please do let me know vie email if the above is something you would like to partake in.
