10th January Meeting...

Thanks to everyone who came along and joined us for our first meeting of 2011.  It was really lovely seeing so many families there (11 families in total, 15 adults and 27 children!)

I don't think that anyone is easily identifiable from these photos, but if you would rather me remove an image of you or your child, please contact me and I will do so as soon as possible.

Home-Ed Group Meeting on 10th January

Art Workshops

Hello Everyone,

I'm really excited to let you know that I've put up the next Art Workshop - Design and Create A Counted Cross Stitch Snowflake which will on one Thursday afternoon in January and one in February :)

I've got lots of ideas for future Art Workshops too including: print block making and primary colour printing to create a book cover and creating beach art to make digital collages or paper collages from the photos :)

I'd love to hear if there are any crafts you'd like me to cover or repeat too :)

Finally I've made a couple of changes to the Art Workshops:
  • I'm limiting the Art Workshops to a maximum eight children plus adults/carers - this has been enough so far but if more people than this want to do them I'll start a waiting list.

  • As the weather gets better I hope to offer some outdoor workshops.

  • I'm offering concessions e.g. for single children - please ask for more information

And a big thank you to all the children and adults who have come along to the Art Workshops so far, I have enjoyed sharing my crafting skills, helping you all to create and seeing your finished pieces so much :)

Happy crafting and I look forward to see you soon
