December Craft Club

Nicky led another fabulous craft club this month with a festive feeling perfect for this time of year.
Here are some pictures of the Christmas trees that were made, perfect for decorating your home. If you have a go at these at home do share your creations on our Facebook or Twitter! 

An easy to make festive treat!

January's Craft Club will lead to another pretty creation!
Craft Club is usually the first Tuesday of each month but in January we will be meeting on the second which is the 9th. In this first meeting of the year we will be trying out hand at paper rose (pictured). If you have  some old books, glue gun, cutting mat please bring them along . 

Pop a note in your diary and as always, look forward to seeing you all then!

November Round-up

November’s meeting was our AGM and our new committee was voted in – so here’s to another great year for our group!

Ready  for our close up, Mr. DeMille

Once the official business was dealt with we had the chance to channel our inner Monroe’s and Bergman’s in a drama class run by Matilda Thaddeus Johns, the founder of Tie-Dye Drama. Judging by the amount of laughter that filled the room a fun night was had by all! 
Get ready to get festive in next month's craft club!

Our next meeting on the 20th of December will coincide with St George's carol service so come along and have a sing song with faces old and new. We will be providing refreshments in our usual meeting space after the service so if you have time, get your pinny on and get into the kitchen and bake something delicious to be enjoyed (with mulled wine) afterwards.
And talking of festivities, December Craft Club on the 5th we will be making paper Christmas trees – hope to see you all then!

October Round-Up

October has been and gone, the clocks have gone back and the nights are drawing in... it's definitely feeling a bit more chilly out there in the mornings too!

We had our regular Craft Club and monthly meeting in October, as well as a visit to the British Museum to the community preview of the new Living With The Gods exhibition.

At Craft Club we got into the festive spirit a little early, and made Christmas wreaths out of ribbons, rags and embroidery hoops:

At our regular monthly meeting we were treated to a talk all about the local history and characters of Museum Street by Geraldine Beskin, owner of Atlantis Books on Museum Street and host of our Craft Club.

Coming up in November:
Craft Club on 7th November, where we'll be trying some simple book-binding, and you can make & take home a concertina-bound book.

Montly Meeting on 15th November, which is our AGM followed by a drama workshop.
