Arts and Crafts
This is a support group for solitary painters to which every member contributes. Our objectives are to: encourage painting; offer supportive comments on the work; make suggestions for possible improvement.
Our aim is a shared enjoyment of art in all its forms.
Creating Christmas/Birthday cards from recycled cards & decorations
A friendly group for self-motivated beginners, who wish to teach themselves to draw using Betty Edwards' book 'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain', which we have found a most effective way of developing skills. More advanced members enjoy pursuing their own projects.
Two parallel groups of interested people meet fortnightly. They include near beginners as well as more competent stitchers, sharing ideas, materials and experience. Very little cost is involved.
We enjoy learning more about arts and crafts, in an informal way, through our many and varied visits. When convenient we use public transport, with details in the Diary. New members always welcome.
The object of the Group is to enjoy the company of like-minded people, learn from each other and swap ideas.
Beginners work on a year-long project making a sampler quilt, sewn either by hand or machine. More experienced quilters work in groups or on their own projects.
The group aims to investigate a wide range of related subjects with talks, discussions, practical workshops, demonstrations and visits etc.
