Tutors and office bearers provide their service free.  Our aim is to keep the costs as low as possible.  The annual membership fee is $30 and entitles you to attend most classes without additional cost.  However from time to time, a small additional cost may be incurred to cover costs of materials etc, depending on the course.  Classes offered depend on the availability of volunteer tutors.

Volunteers for existing and new areas of interest are always welcome.
