We run all our classes from 6 Lintech Court, in the charming village of Linton and we are delighted to be sharing the premises with Cambridge Woodwind Makers. We have a two storey building with wood, metal and glass workshop space in the downstairs area; primarily used by Cambridge Woodwind Makers but also used by Cambridge Art Makers. Upstairs comprises the main art studio, and our lovely kitchen for tea, coffee, biscuits and lunch for all-day classes.
The trustees are pleased to have Susannah and her sister Rosemary Bangham to undertake the day to day running of these courses and the charity.
