A Network for Midlife & Older Women
OWN Member and Grundtvig
OWN member Pauline Walshe travelled to Poland in April to take part in a life long learning workshop on Polish Crafts. An information session hosted by OWN last Summer prompted Pauline to look through the Grundtvig online catalogue and she chose three courses to apply for - one in the UK on gardening, one in Norway on Photography and Crafts in Poland. Pauline was luck enough to be offered all three workshops and finally chose the one in Poland.
Pauline will be writing a few notes about her experience for the OWN website so watch this space.
As OWN was the first organisation to be funded to host a workshop in Ireland it proved that there are endless possibiities to continue the life long learning process. Check OWN's workshop last June to read about the activities of the workshop http://www.ownireland.ie/campaigns_GrundtvigWorkshop2011
