Bring along the usual equipment, pasta machine, clay, work surface (tile or glass), blades etc.  Plus a packed lunch, although you could always go to Sainsburys and buy a snack.

To find the door to our venue, go to the entrance foyer for Sainsburys.  Opposite the opening into Sainsburys are the lifts and stairs, just past the stairs is the door to our venue.



There is free parking in Sainsburys car park.  Use the street level car park, as the underground car park is locked around 5.00pm on a Sunday and we may run over. 



Fast trains run from London Bridge and Victoria to East Croydon.  Cross the tram tracks to the bus stand outside East Croydon station. Take a 64 or 433 to Selsdon.  The stop before you want to get off is Queenhill Road, so ring the bell as it leaves this stop. 


For the 433 the stop is a very short distance.  For the 64 it turns at the traffic lights, then stops shortly after.  Proceed towards the traffic lights and you will see Sainsburys and our venue which are diagonally across the junction (ours has the wrap around wall of windows).
