Pembrey Memorial Community Centre continues its tradition of training in the domestic crafts, but this year, for the first time, Pembrey is also offering courses in arts and athletics. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday are reserved for cooking, embroidery and needlework classes. On Wednesdays we offer a break for those who wish to relax and exercise; golf or aerobics classes. There is also a new landscapepainting class on offer. The tree-lined hills surrounding the campus are a beautiful area to paint.
Glan-y-mor Comprehensive school offers two exciting new courses this semester, both with guest instructors. A dressmaking course for those interested in designing clothes for the theatre will be offered on Wednesday nights. Teaching it is Madeline Albright, who has won numerous awards for her costumes in London theatres. She has done the dressmaking for Shakespeare’s plays as well as contemporary musicals such as Guys and Dolls. Also offered for the first time is a course in computer skills. On Wednesdays the focus is on programming, while Thursdays are reserved for beginners wishing to learn word processing and other basic skills. Donald Matthews, a consultant with IBM in New York, teaches.
