3.Cwrs i Ddechreuwyr

 

Mae’r cwrs cynhwysfawr hwn yn cynnwys pump dosbarthiadau theori o 2:00 – 4:00 ar brynhawn dydd Sul o fis Ebrilli i fis Mai bob blwyddyn, ynghyd a mwy o ddosbarthiadau ymarferol a gynhelir yng ngwenynfa’r Gymdeithas bob prynhawn dydd Sul o fis Mehefin a thrwy y haf. Caiff pob dosbarth ei redeg gan aelodau profiadol o’r Gymdeithas.

Y gost am y cwrs llawn yw £75 y person neu £130 y cwpl, a delir ymlaen llaw neu ar ddiwrnod y dosbarth theori cyntaf. Mae’ch aelodaeth am y flwyddyn gyntaf i’n Cymdeithas yn cael ei chynnwys yn y ffi hon – gweler y tudalennau amdanom-ni/ymuno-a-ni i gael gwybodaeth am fanteision aelodaeth.
