righto, after being asked by several girlies i have decided i need to put this together.
having spoken to Ginkotree and Sally, we have decided on July 25th and 26th. this will be at cwmoernant farm.
we have discussed the cost to be around 50 per head for the weekends accomodation, food and tutoring.
i will also be putting together componant packs for around 40. this will contain everything you will need to put together your own corset using the pattern you will generate during the tutoral. you do not need the componant pack to become involved but it will be available if this is wanted.
the tutorial will consist of a brief run down of the history of corsetry with a little show and tell of a variety of different styles of stays and corsets. and examples of the uses of different componants. we will also show you how to make a "masking tape" pattern and then assist you in making your own. you should all go home with the ability to make as many corsets as you feel you need (in my opinion, lots)
during this weekend, ideally we will also be having soap making and smelly stuff going on. the finer points of this are to be confirmed and i am open to offers and suggestions.
there will be food inclusive being provided by team cwmoernant, however if snowball and jema are in attendance and wish to resume their pizza making crowns on the sunday it would be appreciated. (ingredients will be provided)
and last but not least if anyone has any suggestions for the fellas, so they can be there too then please feel free to offer them up.
i do feel that it may be prudant to keep any men folk busy elsewhere with landys stuck in ditches
i would be greatful if any questions come my way or to Ginkotree. Sally is in need of much rest ergo sally has to struggle with the role of beautiful assistant instead of chief magician this time ( love you sal)

So if for example Chez wanted to come and I wanted to come along and help with cooking or whatever, would that make me a pervert?

No that would make you

a) A possible model

b) Someone for Martin to talk to
