A September 2021 Double-up?

IT MAKES LONG-HAUL SENSE


Looking for a longer 2021 Autumn break in Europe? Those taking my Transylvania Masterclass on Plums 1-7 September could also join me for a weeks workshop in Umbria a few days later 11-18.

In between courses you could stay on in Transylvania with a couple of nights in Sibiu a wonderful Medieval town. Or how about a few nights in Rome. Food for thought...
