Craft Evenings 2017

The china-painting workshop on June 9th was a great success



The brass-rubbing workshop was on May 12th


Yvonne taught us how to do brass rubbing using her brasses and some owned by the church.

Luckily, there was plenty of coffee and cake to keep us going!

On 10th March there was a teddy bear workshop


Our tutor, Jane (on the right) was assisted by Kate



Each teddy bear kit contained cut-out felt pieces, thread, needles and stuffing and scissors

There was a lively discussion about which bit went where

The cakes were a welcome relief from all that concentration



Everyone worked hard to finish their teddy bear

The first Coffee Cake & Craft evening of 2017 was a mosaic workshop

There were a lot of preparations to be made but everything was ready


Time to start

There was a huge range of mosaic pieces from which to choose.


The pieces were glued to a tile to make a coaster.

The tiles were left to dry.  It was time for tea and cake.


When the glue was dry, the tiles were grouted.

Soon they were dry enough to take home, to be left overnight to dry completely.

Meanwhile, many thanks to Peter and Janet for a wonderful evening.
