Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Kingcombe Centre in west Dorset has launched its new 2019 programme of courses and workshops on a new-look website.
The programme has 54 courses covering a wide range of subjects, from conservation to chocolate making.
New courses for 2019 include ‘How to be a successful smallholder’, and ‘Meadow Drift’, which is the first textile course run at the Centre, celebrating the meadows through the medium of textile. Other courses which have returned, include ‘An Introduction to Beekeeping’, ‘Macro Photography’ workshops, ‘Lino Printmaking’, ‘Early Summer Plants in Watercolour’ and the July Kingcombe barn dance.
The Kingcombe Centres’ Visitor Experience Officer, Steve Marsh said, “The Kingcombe Centre is a big part of the local community, serving those who live nearby, but it’s also a great destination for visitors from further afield. This new 2019 programme has something for everyone, with a wide-range of themes. All our courses are easy to book on our new website, and don’t forget to look at our accommodation options for those a bit further away to immerse themselves in the peace and tranquillity at Kingcombe, which is in the heart of west Dorset.”
The Kingcombe Centre has 11 B&B rooms on site, and a stunning living van ‘The Orchard Hut’ overlooking the rolling hills and valleys of Kingcombe.
