See below for details of the Autumn 2019 Adult Education Line-up;
Conversational Irish - Intermediate Level - The class this term will pick up where the last class left off, so it is not suitable for complete beginners to Irish.
DIY for Beginners - This is a new class for Cobh FRC. Areas covered may include how to build and put up simple shelves, changing a door handle, fixing a leaky tap, how to use a drill properly etc. If you are registering please let us know what you would like covered on the course.
Painting with Acrylics- An oldie but a goody here at Cobh FRC. This class will be intermediate level but may be suitable for some beginners depending on experience.
Baby Massage - We are delighted to be holding baby massage classes again. A gorgeous opportunity to learn baby massage techniques in a relaxing atmosphere with other Mums, Dads, babies and our lovely tutor, Debbie.
All the below are subsidized by the Cork ETB and so only cost €15 - €25 in total, to cover materials. Please speak to Stephanie on 021-4816103 for information or to book a place. Payment will secure your place on course. A payment plan can be arranged to spread out the cost of the course if required. Sometimes courses are subject to change or cancellation depending on numbers.
