Christmas 2018

Although small in number,  7,  our Christmas meeting was full of cheer and inspirational work.  We had some wonderful samples of work to pass round . I (Fran) was delighted to see how everyone had engaged with the woodland theme, either by visiting Harrocks Wood or a woodland close to home. The response was very creative with lots of different techniques represented.

Sue showed us a book made from a Sizzix die which used faux leather to great effect.

We disc
ussed the ideas that members would like to explore in 2019, and these include blizzard books (thanks Jac for volunteering to demonstrate this useful format), and a threaded accordion.

Paul Jackson’s visit in June
was discussed, and names of people attending taken. We currently have 11 of 20 places taken up, with three non members on a reserve list, so if you wish to come to this session please let Marilyn know at the January meeting at the latest. The session will run from 10-4pm and an extended room has been booked for the event to give us plenty of space.

We made greetings books for each other during the session, a good reminder of an enjoyable session. Although perhaps early, we wish you all a very Happy Christmas and lots of making in the New Year.

We shall be meeting as usual on January 5th, but please note that we will be making a charge of £5 for meetings as from that month.

Message from Eric........who has at last made it home.

 "Thank you for sending the news paper clip. It good to come a cross like mind people and I find it very inspiring looking at other people’s work.  We are now back in Ulladulla after a week of travel and managing to avoid severe weather very lucky.  It sounds like December’s meeting went well.  I enjoy attending when I am over there.  I would like to be there for the pop up workshop as he is and excellent teacher.
    Anyway I like to thank all at North West Book Arts for making me most welcome.
Until next time have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year"

Saturday December 1st is officially the meteorological start of winter, so anyone following our woodland theme,  have 3 months  to create something to represent their chosen woodland in Winter.

As there is so much interest in leaf and rust printing I will add a couple of pages on different techniques  for the January blog.
