Autumn 2020 courses

Our autumn 2020 courses will be announced later this summer

We had to cancel our March, April and May courses because of coronavirus which is a shame, but we’re hoping to start up again soon. Stay safe everyone.

If you’d like to book a weekend course at The Big Raise, then please use this form. If you’d like more information then please check our FAQ here or, if you can’t find the answer to your question in our FAQ, then please email us at: [email protected].

Travel plans

It’s helpful for us to know where you’re coming from and how you’re travelling. For example, if everyone is arriving on the same train, then we can book a taxi for you. Or if you’re planning to come by car (heaven forbid!), and you happen to be coming from the same place as someone else, then we can put you in touch so you can car share. We’re still waiting for the first course participant to arrive on a bicycle!!!


To confirm your booking, please send a £30 deposit by cheque or bank transfer.

We’ll refund your deposit when you arrive. However, if you cancel within 48 hours of the start of a course, then we reserve the right to keep your deposit in order to cover our costs.

If you’d like to send the deposit by bank transfer, then please email [email protected] and ask for our bank account details.

Please make cheques payable to ALEXIS ROWELL and post them to: Alexis Rowell, La Grande Raisandière, 72400 La Chapelle-du-Bois, France
