This is a newcomer-friendly event! This is a day without costumes, so you don’t have to worry about dressing up. There’ll be the opportunity to hang out and ask questions, and plenty of space to bring your own projects, power points and benches for sewing machines. The grounds are quiet and sunny for going outside and doing things like hand sewing in the sun or under a tree.

If you would like to run a class for this day (or any other day for that matter) for adults or children (or both), we’d love to hear about it. Please email Tina/Cairistiona on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Time tables will be published about a week prior to each Dence Park day, please keep an eye out so that you know what is happening each month.
There is a break in the middle of the day’s schedule for a Pot Luck lunch. This would be a great time for anyone who would like to try out some of their period cooking on a receptive audience to bring out some of their creations. Alternatively just bring along something to share, it does not have to be a period dish. Remember to bring plates, cutlery, and a cup or mug if you wish to make a hot drink.
Bring a project you are working on, start a new project or come and learn something new, or even just bring a game to share and play.
This is a child–friendly event with boffer and games. All persons under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
