Denman is the WI’s centre for learning, offering a wealth of opportunities to learn new skills on day schools and short courses in the field of cookery, craft and lifestyle. Everyone is welcome – men and women, members and non-members  – we can even cater for groups of friends who are looking for something a bit different.

Set in the picturesque village of Marcham, near Oxford, the Georgian mansion and 17 acres of grounds provide a relaxing environment for learning.

The Denman range includes something for every interest – from curries, cakes and crochet to papercutting, photography and Pilates – and the courses are designed to cater for the complete beginner to the more accomplished practitioner.

You can visit the Denman website to browse courses from the Cookery School, Craft school and those in the Lifestyle section.

Or follow Denman on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for news, exclusive offers, competitions and more!
