2020 February - Art & Craft Group - Salt Dough Workshop
The Salt & Flour was flying as we attempted to create our cottages ... Great fun!
Chris James summed up another successful workshop: "We spent our afternoon making Salt Dough plaques. (bringing back memories of play school!). Huge thanks to Kate for all the preparation and expert instruction"  Thanks to Linda for washing up our mixing bowls and her Mum Jean for the idea in the first place.
Now comes the hard part - baking them - fingers crossed they all survive for painting!

2019 August - Embroidery & Cross-Stitch Workshop
The concentration can be seen on the faces of the group as needles skewered cloth & shouts of 'Ow' echoed through the hall.

But as you can see from the photo of our "work in progress" the perseverance paid off and we all had work to take home.
Thanks again to Kate for organising this splendid workshop.
