Denman College

 Denman College
I spent 2 very hot, busy and exciting days at Denman College on Monday Tuesday this week. Denman College is the WI's home of cookery craft and lifestyle courses in Marcham, Oxfordshire - inspiring students each year to develop their skills or try a new craft or activity. The Georgian house, set in 17 acres of beautiful grounds is complimented by a suite of teaching rooms fitted out with the latest equipment. Most of the money needed to buy, develop and maintain the College over the years has been raised by members of the Women’s Institute.

Various tutors that run courses at Denman were demonstrating what they do best and promoting their courses. It was great to have 2 days to play with all the new materials I have and meet so many interested ladies. We all had great fun and to top it all we had to eat hog roast and WI scones and clotted cream everyday. OOhh!! It was a nightmare – not! I shall be back at Denman on the 12th July for a 3 day workshop. I can’t wait to get back there. I LOVE it!!! I have even become an associate member of the WI. Who’d have thought? 
There was real garden party atmosphere in the sunshine
