Our Meetings for the next few months

September – Whether you have not drawn since school or like to sketch, our life drawing session is not only lots of fun (and giggles) but everyone amazes themselves with what they can produce during the session, hosted by Bernadette Koranteng Art Workshops.

October – We did this as a kit last year and everyone LOVED it, so we’re going to be getting all greenfingered and making our very own Bulb Lasagne, this is a way of layering bulbs so that as one flower fades another one springs up in its place!

November – We’re super excited to be offering a Fused Glass Workshop with the wonderful Sue from Glassic, this is something that has been requested so many times and we are so pleased to be finally able to offer it. You will be able to collect your work at the December meeting once it has been fired.

December – Our Door Wreath workshop with Ravensworth Nurseries is one of the most popular sessions of the year, everything is provided, you just need to bring some gloves as the holly can be prickly!

January – We’ll be hosting our very own Murder Mystery with the team from Tall Tales Mysteries! A great way to meet other people and test your sleuthing skills! We also need volunteers to play the parts, so please get in touch if you would like to be involved.
