April News....

Last meeting saw us learn about designing our own edible garden with Neils Corfield. Hopefully the lovely weather over Easter has inspired us to get out into the garden.

If you are feeling inspired and crafty after the Easter break our April session will certainly get you in the mood.  Local potter and needle felting enthusiast, Juliet Fleming, will give us an introduction to the wonderful world of needle felting... an accessible and addictive craft which allows even a complete beginner to achieve lovely results in both two and three-dimensional projects.

Juliet will take us through the basics and help us create our own 3D piece by felting onto polystyrene balls as well as talking about techniques that are more advanced, materials and suppliers.

Juliet says: “Once you've got the bug (and you will!), the only limit is your imagination.” So for those who are interested in doing more, we can look at setting up a some smaller group sessions.

In order to help ensure our members get the most out of their membership, the WI will be launching  My WI, allowing members to access the WI much more easily.  The WI will be sending out passwords shortly so please much sure we have your correct email address.

At this month’s meeting, we will be asking members to vote on whether they support the resolutions, which will go to the WI AGM in June. More information on the resolutions - Alleviating loneliness and Plastic Soup: keep mircoplastic fibres out of our ocean, can be found on the WI website.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 26th.
