Tues 24th February – Easter Paper Crafts

Things to bring if you can please:

Paper or card at least A4 size in whatever pattern or colour you fancy, cutting mat, craft knife, scissors, glue (Pritt stick should do), ruler to use as a cutting guide, pencil, ribbon, any other Easter embellishments you fancy, hot glue gun.

Don’t worry if you only have the basics, we’ll have some spares of most things, but bring along some card you like if you can (paper is ok too but card would be sturdier of course).

Tues 27th January – Vocal Workshop

VocalWorkshop

A message from Julie who will be hosting the evening!

Hi, my name is Julie and I’m a singing teacher and performer based in Seaford. I am the owner of Julie’s Art of Noise, and I also run children’s singing groups and entertain in local care homes.

I will be going though basic singing techniques and some fun exercises too, for example:

• Breathing (using your diaphragm)
• Pitch work
• Resonating
• Vocal cord work
• Tongue twisters

We will also work on a few rounds followed by a group sing along (or solos if anyone is brave enough) at the end.
I’m looking forward to meeting you all on the 27th!

Tues 28th October – Crochet for all abilities plus AGM

Our next meeting is on 28th Oct which is during the half term hols. This month we will be doing crochet for all levels, including complete beginners so don’t worry if you’re a total novice like me!! We will have crochet hooks to buy (£1.25) or borrow – or you can bring your own, along with any odd bits of yarn or patterns you’d like to have a go out.

We will also be including a short AGM within our meeting. We LOVE creating these fun and fabulous evenings for you all, but now we need a little help from you. Our key committee members have decided that it’s time to step down due to other commitments etc – each role needs to be filled. All three ladies, President, Treasurer and Secretary are very happy to help their replacements to find their feet in their new roles – you won’t be thrown in at the deep end! We currently have a good set up for meetings, lots of ideas for future events and if we continue our Nearly New Sales, a tried and tested framework for the sales which with a small amount of effort fall into place. Whilst there are a few of us Committee ladies left we will need at least a couple of you to either join the committee and or step into one of these roles.

If you join the committee you won’t suddenly have a huge amount of work to do for our WI – it’s little every now and again generally, also we don’t expect you to make every meeting or every event either, we share the work load and always support each other. We won’t be forcing anyone into anything so please don’t not come to this meeting just to avoid pressure – we only want willing ladies, there will be no arm twisting 😉

See you there for crochet, chat, a cuppa & of course cake!!

Tues 23rd September – Felting crafts

This month we will be trying out some needle felting. A few of us took a class earlier in the year and made the birds you can see on the website and Facebook. This time we’re going to be making simple but effective Halloween decorations and you will be able to try a couple of the ideas.

Supplies:

As we are really keen to keep our group an active group we will sometimes be asking for small additional donations to put towards supplies, this month we will supply what you need for £2 – but feel free to bring your own supplies if you have them, you’ll need some orange, green, black and white roving wool, enough to create an apple sized pumpkin and or a hand sized white ghost, and or a small black spider or witches hat. You will also need a needle felting needle and a pipe cleaner or 2, any colour. Scissors could also be useful. If you have a largish flat sponge (like a big yellow one) or a piece of thick foam, please bring that, if not bring a towel that you can fold up and work on.

Look forward to seeing you there! Julia & Helen
